SENSEG – revolutionary haptic interaction


Using expertise in touch-based perception, the Finnish firm Senseg has developed a tactile technology called ‘e-sense’ that uses “tixels”, which can be applied in ultra-thin coatings on many kinds of devices to give user interactions a tangible dimension.

These tixels can transmit varying electronic fields which can be used to simulate a variety of textures be it hard or soft, rough or smooth, sticky or slippery for a number of use cases ranging from the visceral to highly functional.

It was in this firm that I worked interning as interaction designer for two and a half months. Designing and crafting the multimodal dimensions were a key aspect of my interaction design work there. There was a steep yet incredibly enriching learning curve that comes with new paradigms of interactive interfaces.

Key roles fulfilled by me:

  • Graphic Design
  • Game Development
  • Interaction Design
  • R & D work
  • API development
  • Concept design and use cases
  • Usability and User Testing
