Force Feedback Device Omni

Geomagic Touch

The Geomagic Touch is a relatively low cost haptic device. Its portable design and compact footprint for workplace flexibility provides a desktop solution for professionals and researchers who perform certain types of haptic research as well as students to translate theory into practice. The device has six revolute joints, with three of them actuated and three non-actuated joints (wrist joints). The three motors can actuate the end-effector – the tip of the stylus – to span the entire X, Y, Z region in its workspace.
