Sensable’s PHANTOM Omni (Geomagic Touch)

The Phantom Omni Haptic Device is a six degree-of-freedom positional sensing device. It is the most cost effective haptic device on the market. It features a touch 3D stylus. It provides force feedback. It looks like a device with an arm holding a stylus pen. The “pen” simulates physical sensations. It can be used to simulate different activities, including sculpting of clay and medical procedures. For example, the artist holding the stylus and “touches” the clay design she sees on screen, feeling its properties as she sculpts.   This has been used in education to demonstrate physics properties in science lessons, geometry lessons and handwriting instruction.
