(RoadToVR) AxonVR has announced the closure of a $5.8 million seed investment, which is claimed to be the largest secured by a VR haptics company to date. The company intends to use the money to build out their HaptX platform which will be licensed directly to businesses such as theme parks and VR arcades.
The company’s HaptX Skeleton is a full-body exoskeleton that uses force feedback to enable both locomotion and macro-haptic feedback to entire limbs. While they did not provide a date for when the HaptX Skeleton would be available, AxonVR president, Mark Kroese, says that they will have a product shipping sometime in 2017.
