Stuck Labs has unveiled a new tactile lift button that remains safely contactless yet is capable of providing two types of feedback without the need for any interaction by a user. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Kinetic Touchless button which uses motion as feedback.
When used in the context of lift buttons, Kinetic Touchless mirrors your finger movements to recreate the tactile response of pushing a button. As the finger moves towards the button to activate it, as one would a traditional lift button, the Kinetic Touchless button responds with the same motion by sinking inwards before pushing back out, directly mimicking the finger motion. This drastically shifts the image of how touchless tech can be, “a tactile button that remains safely contactless” say its creators.
“Bringing the Human Touch back to Contactless Tech – Kinetic Touchless is an contactless interaction that brings tactility back to touchless tech. By mimicking movement at a distance, Kinetic Touchless provides tactile feedback that mirrors the input motion, even when no direct contact is involved. In doing so, Kinetic Touchless capitalises on the flexibility of contactless interactions while maintaining the tactility of contact interactions.”
“COVID-19 has made us question every surface we touch. This hyper-awareness of contaminated public surfaces created a growing preference for more touchless interactions to reduce the probability of infection. Yet, most touchless tech tends towards a static sensor with a light or buzz to indicate an activated button, greatly diminishing the push button interaction.”
