A slight glance at today’s technology pages will show a growing desire to work towards a future of increased digital immersion. These technologies have several potential applications, from quirky additions to gaming and team building programs, to serious, in-depth training for hazardous professions.

The Product

WeArt technology is a strong example of the introduction of science fiction concepts into real-world projects
and design, to produce a potential real-world benefit.

It can be used to add a tactile layer to VR/AR training platforms, multimedia contents, immersive e-commerce and advertising experiences and to digitalize material properties.

How does it work?

This technology can be used to record and reproduce tactile sensations: forces, vibrations and temperature changes. On one hand, it records user’s tactile interactions while grabbing objects surrounding it. On the other hand, it reproduces these sensations, providing for the touch digitalization process, already existing for sight and hearing.

Aims And Next-Steps

WeArt expects the product use in a wide range of industries: social platforms, VR/ AR training, e-commerce, entertainment, advertising. WeArt is ideated by SIRS Lab (Siena Robotics and Systems Lab), a robotics lab active in different research fields, in cooperation with e-Novia.
