Close your eyes and think of your car without any mechanical buttons.  No power window switches, no fan controls, no windshield wiper buttons. Surfaces are streamlined, modern, clean.

Hap2U is on the way to bringing this to reality – our haptic technology can be integrated into more than just displays.  It is compatible with any hard surface, opening the possibility for it to be integrated into dashboards, windows, panels…and more.


Here are some of the ideas we’ve already come up with.  What other ideas do you have?

  • Haptic center console displays to control entertainment, navigation, and communication menus
  • To replace climate control buttons and switches
  • On or behind the steering wheel to activate and disactivate cruise control
  • Below the dashboard to turn on the windshield wipers
  • To replace power window switches, on the door armrest or directly on the window
  • In a car simulator, to learn how to drive
  • On your keyless entry fob to lock and unlock the car and open the trunk
