Company Summary

Be it using a pencil, typing on a keyboard, or holding a hand, the sense of touch is constantly at work, connecting our brains and bodies to the world around us. At Tanvas, we have tapped into the richness of touch by developing surface haptics, a novel technology that lets you feel what you see on a touchscreen or trackpad. TanvasTouch is a platform that taps into existing user interface behaviors but offers a new level of engagement for games and advertisements, a new level of usability for touchscreens in cars and mobile phones, and new ways to make touch interfaces more accessible to the vision impaired.
