BeatTouch™

Innovative Haptic Solution
Based on Magneto-Rheological Elastomer

CK Materials Lab empowers device manufacturers with the most innovative haptic solution in the world.
BeatTouch™ Haptic Solution, originated from a smart material called Magneto-Rheological Elastomer(MRE),
brings brand new tactile sensations such as rhythmical tapping, rubbing and many more to the mobile and entertainment devices.

Material

Magneto-Rheological Elastomer (MRE)

Magneto-Rheological Elastomer(MRE), a mixture of magnetic particles and elastic substances (e.g. natural or synthetic rubber), is one of the smart materials controlled by an external magnetic field generated from the induced current. It is soft and flexible when there is no magnetic field applied, but it dramatically changes its structure and brings stiffness as magnetic field is applied. The level of stiffness varies depending on the types of magnetic particles and elastic substances.

Technology

INNOVATIVE HAPTIC SOLUTION

BeatTouch™ is an innovative haptic solution based on Magneto-Rheological Elastomer(MRE). It is a patented technology which controls the activity of MRE in various structures by the magnetic field generated from the induced current, thus creates brand new tactile sensations. The key of this technology lies in the unique formulation of MRE, its structure and the current control.

INNOVATIVE HAPTIC ACTUATORS : BeatTouch™ SERIES

BeatTouch™ Haptic Actuators – BeatTouchTM-S and BeatTouchTM-M and BeatTouchTM-C are innovative haptic components exclusively developed by CK Materials Lab. They distinguish themselves from the existing small vibrating motors in the current market by their unique base materials, structures and most importantly, the tactile senses they create. Applied in the various types of mobile and entertainment devices, BeatTouch™ Haptic Actuators bring rhythmical tapping, rubbing and many more delicate sensations for realistic and humanized haptic feedback.
