The Taclim system includes the world's first VR shoes “Taclim Shoes”, and a haptic feedback device “Taclim Module” with a built-in tactile device. “Taclim System” creates touch sensations and functions as a controller.
Experience the feeling of wearing shoes in a VR space, the senses of walking on ground such as desert, grassland or water on the soles of your feet. Imagine walking in a VR game and kicking enemy character, when you hit the enemy’s body it naturally feels soft, and when you hit enemy's shield, it feels hard. By using your own hands and feet, your whole body is completely immersed in another world giving you experiences only made possible by Taclim’s interactive tactile devices.
Taclim Module is designed as a separate tactile motor part and communication part to be integrated into 3rd party VR controllers enabling the controller to be flexible in size and design e.g. a gun controller, a steering wheel controller etc…
For example when you want to create a gun controller, connect a sensor which detects users' movement mounted at the trigger, bolt action and magazine release button part of the gun to the GPIO of the Taclim Module. You then have a dedicated VR gun controller with Wi-Fi connectivity and haptic feedback.
"Taclim Shoes" give haptic feedback to your feet via tactile devices, and also transmit foot movement instantaneously through the built-in 9 axis sensor.
Also by combining with the existing 9-axis sensors, the accuracy of walking has been greatly improved. Parts of the heel can be exchanged, and by attaching a third-party tracker such as HTC's "VIVE Tracker", a room scale VR space can utilize actual movement.
Taclim's SDK will be provided as a Unity plugin to control Taclim from your content. Basic vibration patterns will also be provided as sample data and vibration data can be generated by importing .wav format files.
