Company Profile (Tactonic Technologies)

Tactonic Technologies logo
Tatonic Technologies, LLC. develops and markets sensing technologies with the expressed purpose of fostering a world where interaction everywhere is a reality. Tactonic Technologies' pressure imaging sensors are designed such that covering arbitrarily large (or small) surfaces with sensate materials is a cost effective possibility. By providing cost effective force sensing materials, Tactonic Technologies helps its clients provide richer interaction between humans, our surroundings and our digital devices. Using this technology, consumers will be able to interact with their devices and environments as opposed to on them.
