Black Falcon 3D Touch Haptic Controller
The Falcon is a sophisticated 3D touch haptic device. In essence a small robot, it can provide a user with 3 Degree of Freedom (DOF) control and force feedback. It is therefore both a 3D input controller and 3D output device. The Falcon has 3 parallel arms that move in and out of the body, each connected to a motor. It connects to a computer with a USB 2.0 port. The computer can then keep track of the handle's movements through space (x, y, z or right-left, forwards-backwards, up-down) and output forces at 1000 Hz to give a realistic sense of touch in computing. The Falcon can simulate a detailed sense of touch including surfaces and textures, game effects like gun recoil or impact forces, and even medical simulation. The Falcon is a powerful and inexpensive solution for high-fidelity haptics.
