Description
"”Emerge Home is the first step in a broader journey to create a new language of touch in the virtual world,” said Castro, co-CEO of Emerge, in a statement. “We are starting with virtual reality today, and exploring other interfaces in the near future. Instead of attempting to replicate the feeling of reality, Emerge focuses on communicating emotions through virtual tactile experiences.”"

The newly launched Emerge Home system includes the Emerge Wave-1 tabletop device where users can use their hands as controllers to touch virtual objects without the use of additional wearables, the Emerge "social virtual experience", and the Emerge Home mobile app.
