We merge the human body with the digital world to create new experiences. And emotions.Swipe for more
Experiences are sensory
Human experiences are rooted in the physical.
Neuroscience shows our brain integrates touch with our other senses to create a sense of self by owning our body.
An unreal digital reality
Virtual and augmented reality experiences are currently disconnected from the body – and almost all senses.
Groundbreaking immersive technology
We take immersion to innovative heights.
Our technology creates a sensory experience with lived emotions, truly connecting the body with the digital world. Its uses in our daily lives are limitless.
Our pioneering neuro-haptic skin generates targeted sensations, feelings, and emotions in the brain through stimulation of the body, transforming the way we perceive the digital world.
Flexible and Scalable
MetaTouch is made of a soft, biocompatible, silicone layer that can take any shape, size, and even be 3D printed. MetaTouch can be used on the entire body, from the feet to the neck, and even inside the ear!
Life-like bodily stimulation
MetaTouch stimulates the two most intimate senses, touch and temperature, and can be integrated with other immersive technologies and physiological sensing.
From the body to the brain
MetaTouch effectively “hacks” the nervous system via the surface of the skin. This is only possible by combining the richest haptic feedback with advanced mapping of how haptic stimulation affects mental states.
Metaphysiks will contribute to humanizing the Metaverse, bringing physical and emotional engagement to the digital world.
MetaTouch creates a digital world where is possible to increase focus during meditation or have a more efficient power nap while feeling the waves of your favorite ocean.
Be IN the game, both physically and emotionally. MetaTouch extends what your senses can feel, perceiving your environment as well as sharing your intentions and emotions through unique thermal and touch feedback.
MetaTouch creates a digital world where it is possible to remotely experience the human connection and healing interaction with a therapist.
Positively transform lives by merging the best of both the physical and digital worlds.
