Low cost prototype duplication and industrialisation feasibility

When we started the MUVII project, we knew that the task would be difficult. Indeed the haptics technologies were not much developed until this day because of their cost and the difficulties of integration. In the current state of technology and market, it is necessary to notice that the existing products are American or Japanese, that they are not portable and that they are very expensive.

The idea to move from the notion of return-of-effort to that of return-of-sensation in order to get a light device at a small cost attracted the MUVII project partners but also the end users (e.g. theme parks, museums, video games producers and device manufacturers for general public market).

We have demonstrated that we can produce in a reasonable period and at an acceptable cost, three functional industrialized prototypes (ITDx2 and IKDx1). We acquired this certainty by making the strategic choice to simplify the devices. This choice allows significantly reducing the cost of reproduction of the prototypes.
