Getting started with the Ultraleap Haptics Development Kit
The Ultraleap Haptics Development Kit has been designed to enable professionals in research and design to harness the potential of ultrasonic mid-air haptics
The Ultraleap Haptics Development Kit was created to make the experience of mid-air haptic feedback accessible to everyone.
It’s the perfect introduction kit for customers who want to quickly and simply experience and present the future of spatial interactivity, today.
Included in the Haptics Development Kit is Ultraleap’s haptics customization software, Sensation Designer. With a simple to use graphical interface and several interaction examples included, gesture control combined with mid-air haptic feedback can be experienced at the click of a button. No coding or technical knowledge required!
Integrate haptic feedback into your own applications using the Haptics Software Development Kit. The Haptics SDK provides the link between your application and the haptics hardware. This enables you to augment your own applications with mid-air haptic feedback, programmatically, and enrich your users’ experience.

The Haptics SDK allows you to:
- Create haptic sensations in code
- Change and control haptic parameters
- Playback haptic sensations created in Sensation Designer
- Integrate into applications using the C API and sample code
- Trigger haptic sensations from custom events, e.g. pinch gesture or a button in your UI
