Introducing the HSD mk.III: The Ultimate Solution for Advanced, Wireless Haptic Prototyping

Are you ready to take your haptic prototype to the next level but not sure where to begin? At Actronika, we have the solution for you! Allow us to introduce the next generation of the HSD mk.II: the HSD mk.III. Like its predecessor, this is a multichannel haptic controller with 20 channels, enabling individual and detailed control of each actuator. However, it comes with additional features that will elevate your prototype to new heights.

After the development of the HSD mk.II, the first multichannel haptic controller of its kind, we wanted to enhance the prototyping experience for our clients. How did we do it? We addressed two key issues based on their feedback: the size of the board and wireless connectivity.

Firstly, as you may have guessed, our team modified the size of the board to make it smaller, offering a more versatile design for more attractive prototypes. To tackle the second issue, we integrated WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity based on the same solution applied in our Skinetic vest. Now, you can create and enjoy your prototypes comfortably without being tethered to cables, resulting in a cleaner finish that aligns more closely with your final product vision.

Additionally, as a bonus, we've revamped the actuator-to-board connection system to make the assembly process even faster than before (Yes, that’s possible!).

What's in the box?

The HSD mk.III kit comes with everything you need to make your project a reality:

HSD MK III board

20 Cables

20 Actuators

1 x battery

1 x Power Supply

What are the prototyping possibilities with  the HSD mk.III?

Whether you have a clear idea of what you want to create or not, we understand that it can be challenging to know where to start to achieve the haptic experience you desire. Not to worry, the HSD mkIII is compatible with Unitouch Studio haptic design software. With its variety of intuitive tools, you'll have detailed control over each actuator, as well as access to a library of sensations with over 200 options divided into categories essential for all types of experiences, from natural elements to gaming attacks to cinematic effects and more!

Furthermore, the workspace in Unitouch offers a variety of layouts for audio devices in Actuator mode, such as wearables, headsets, or even a chair. If your desired device isn't listed, simply personalize your layout with the desired number of actuators and upload it. Let your imagination run wild!

Say goodbye to bulky prototyping kits with limited haptic channels and unleash your creativity and ambition with the HSD mk.III!
