Markets and Applications

Living devices are now a reality with Novasentis technology. Our mission is to design and deliver ultra-thin and powerful EMP actuators to OEMs and product designers. We will shape the Neo-Sensory Age together with our customers and partners, empowering people to connect on a deeper physical and emotional level with their devices, and to each other through their devices.

The versatile features and slim form factor of EMP technology make innovative ultra-thin keyboards, wearables, and other consumer electronics devices more intuitive and effective than ever before. Imagine the possibilities with devices that help you learn, determine who’s calling, or help you navigate your way through a crowd—all in real-time and without the need for a display. Consumer electronics will never be the same. Our technology can also bring new innovations in medical, automotive, and industrial product design. Life-saving medical and assistive devices and safer driving experiences that inform and protect consumers represent only a small fraction of opportunities available with EMP technology.



Input Devices: Work Smarter with Haptics – Haptic feedback keyboards, mice, stylus, and other input devices improve typing accuracy and enable less reliance on visual cues. EMP input devices communicate errors and typos through the user’s sense of touch and sound.

Wearables: Effective Immersive Experiences – EMP actuators enable hundreds of different haptic alerts felt directly on the skin. Know when an email is received, who is calling, or even if a daily walking goal has been achieved without looking.

Mobile Devices: Hardware and Software Possibilities – Whole-device vibration is no longer feasible for mobile devices moving toward thinner, lighter and flexible form factors. Imagine the possibilities – a seamless device with invisible keys, or a navigation app providing turn instructions without the need to view a display.

Automotive: Increased Safety – Hands on the wheel, eyes on the road. Haptic steering wheels and automotive interiors increase safety for drivers and passengers. With EMPs, clunky buttons and knobs turn into flat haptic buttons to enable seamless surfaces and luxurious user experiences.

Medical: Lifesaving Medical and Assistive Devices – EMPs enable intuitive control inside and outside the body. Shorten surgery times, increase patient safety, and allow for the highest quality care. People with disabilities benefit from EMP-enabled devices.
