The TapXR will allow users to type, input commands and navigate menus as well as fast and accurate eyes-free texting and control with any Bluetooth device including phones, tablets, smart TVs, and virtual and augmented reality headsets.
Dovid Schick, Tap CEO stated, “TapXR solves a critical problem with mass adoption of AR/VR/MR. Up until now there has been no way for users to comfortably interact with these headsets. Users will now be able to type, select menus and interact faster, without fatigue, and with tactile feedback. This enables far wider usage of XR for things such as productivity, commerce and the metaverse.”
The device works by sensing the user’s finger taps on any surface and decoding them into digital signals. Although ordinary hand gestures can be slow and error-prone, tapping is fast and accurate. Tap users can type more than 70 words per minute with one hand and the device has more than 100 unique commands.
