Since our Haptic Feedback Evaluation Kit was released in early 2014 we’ve seen a number of companies use it in their full development cycle. It not only helps introduce haptic feedback to those who are not familiar with the technology, which can be great for getting buy-in from management or non-technical colleagues, but it can also be used as a platform to jump-start development of a device.
Ultimately, the best compliment we’ve received is great feedback from a number of companies we would consider to be technology leaders. This is perhaps one of the reasons that these companies become as successful as they are – they’re always open to new ideas and innovative tools.
Needless to say, with the success of the kit we’ve had our mind on continuing to improve the product itself and its functionality for customers. So we are delighted to announce that we are currently working on the second revision, which will support a number of new features!
Once released, the new version will take the name Haptic Feedback Evaluation Kit and have the same product code (M20-200). However, if there is any point where the original and new version need to be differentiated, we will refer to them as Rev1 and Rev2 respectively. You can see from the image below, there are a few visual differences.
Whilst we finalise the last details of the next revision of the Haptic Feedback Evaluation Kit, all existing resources will remain in place. These will eventually be replaced with updated materials to reflect the most recent version of the kit, however, a copy of Rev1 materials will remain accessible for current users (alternatively you can email us to request PDF copies of anything you need).
If you would like to keep up to date on the new version of the kit then please sign up to our email list here:
Haptic Feedback Evaluation Kit Rev2 Release List – List closed, the kit is already available!
This will not be an ongoing subscription and you won’t be bombarded with spam – it’s a one-off email to let you know that the kit is available to order. As with Rev1, subscribers will get preferential treatment, so sign up to ensure you get the kit before it goes on general sale!
For those who either cannot wait or are looking to grab a bargain, we do have some stock of the original Rev1 shield, which is being sold as a stand-alone product whilst stocks last. Please read more about this on the product page here (since depreciated).
As always, if there is any information you need please feel free to contact us using this link!
