Progress at Artificial Muscle

Progress at Artificial Muscle

IDTechEx recently visited Artificial Muscle in Sunnyvale, CA. The company develops, designs and manufactures actuators, sensors, and power generation components based on electroactive polymers. The main focus of the company today is on haptic feedback systems - i.e. systems that give the user a physical response to the touch. Conventionally, metal dome switches are employed in keypads, for example, to provide sensory feedback to the user when something has been pressed. However, with the move to touch screen displays, the haptic response is lacking.
