DEMO – “CHANGES THE GAME”

Real Gamers talk about Taction: “Intense…” “…It’s like being there.” “…Extra-sensory input…” “Knowing where everyone is…” “like seeing sound layers…” “…if I had headphones like these I would never look back.”

USES

Taction lets people feel and locate sound, enriching the experience of music, gaming, and virtual reality.


GAMING

Taction helps players sense where shots, explosions, and footsteps are coming from so they can locate and face new threats. Tests show that on average Taction provides a 60 millisecond competitive edge.

HOME THEATER

In Jurassic Park the approaching T-Rex made ripples in a puddle.  With Taction, the listener is that puddle. With Taction, old movies are new again, and new blockbusters are devastating.

MUSIC

For bassheads and DJs, intense headphone taction can hit hard enough to blur vision.  Rap, EDM, and dubstep are transformed. For audiophiles, subtle headphone taction gives tight, clear kick drums, and clean localization of each instrument. Whether it’s a little or a lot, once someone tries Taction, they can’t go back.  Music without Taction lacks something essential.

AR/VR

The age of virtual and augmented reality is here, with visually immersive new hardware and software.  Taction’s soft tactile transducers and spatial rendering algorithms have a key role to play in this revolution.  Taction intensifies and clarifies spatial audio, providing subtle orientation cues that help users navigate.   In VR, Taction can be the difference between “the uncanny valley” and “being there.”

TECHNOLOGY

Taction preserves hearing by giving an intense experience at lower volume.  Tests show Taction lets users turn down the volume 4 dB on average, equivalent to cutting exposure time by more than half.  Compared to Taction headphones, ordinary headphones double the risk of hearing damage.

Taction’s technology portfolio has grown from the work of a former MIT Scientist fascinated by touch since he “felt the low notes of a piano in second grade.” Protected by multiple pending patents, the company’s first tactile module is a game-changer. Unlike anything else, it faithfully renders all bass frequencies (15-250 Hz), at up to twenty-times the power of any headphone module before it.

Fully developed and available for demonstration in a production device, Taction’s technology has already produced stunning results for gamers, improving their spatial reaction times by an average of 60 milliseconds.

INVESTORS

Taction will redefine sound the way Technicolor redefined black-and-white movies.

Taction impacts users, companies, and investors.

To users, it’s the gamer’s edge.  It’s the bass-head’s drop. It’s the action in the action movie.  It’s the reality in the virtual reality headset.

To companies battling for market share, Taction is a differentiator of mass destruction, with advantage going to first-movers.  For select partners, Taction provides engineering assistance with integrating headphone-ready modules into existing products.  Contact Taction to secure technology that  dominates markets and delights customers.
