San Jose, CA (PRWEB) September 28, 2009
CyberGlove Systems LLC, makers of the CyberGlove® family of data glove and haptic devices, and Immersion SA, makers of the iliGHT™ multitouch tactile table have announced a technological partnership that will bring the iliGHT to the Americas. CyberGlove Systems has signed a joint partnership agreement with Immersion SA to become the official reseller of the iliGHT tactile table in North and South Americas. This innovative device brings an intuitively easy-to-use group interface that makes collaborating more natural to users of the interactive table. The iliGHT is very flexible, allowing for a multitude of software tools such as Google Earth, photo manipulation and a paint program to interface with the device. Games can also be played with the iliGHT, such as Supreme Commander. Demonstation videos can be found here.
"Awed by the iliGHT experience at the Laval show in France, I knew this device was revolutionary and I felt that CyberGlove Systems could help bring this extraordinary product to the Americas," said Faisal Yazadi, CEO of CyberGlove Systems. By bringing the iliGHT to the Americas, CyberGlove Systems looks to greatly augment an already formidable line of motion capture and haptics products. This marks the first collaborative and complementary 3rd party hardware product offering from CyberGlove Systems.

This haptic technology benefits customers by simulating realistic physical forces such as gravity and touch for industrial engineering, military, and academic research applications. CGS customers include Fortune 500/Global 500 corporations, government agencies, and universities in the U.S., Europe, Asia, Middle East and South America.
Established in 1990, the CyberGlove® Systems family of products remains the most trusted and widely used data glove solution today with the very best customer support. In 2009, the CyberGlove business was divested by its former parent company, Immersion Corporation. The base CyberGlove® system is a wireless data glove that accurately captures the movement of a user's fingers and hand, and, in conjunction with the software, maps the movement to a graphical hand on the computer screen, allowing users to "reach in and manipulate" digital objects as if they were physical objects. The most sophisticated product, the CyberForce®, adds whole-arm force feedback allowing users to experience the complete sensation of object manipulation in virtual reality.
