Transforming live matches from accessible to immersive.

Feel The Game.

From the amount of swerve on a free kick, to the strength of a tackle, our haptic technology enables visually impaired football fans to feel the action for themselves, without relying solely on a commentator’s interpretation. Our advanced computer vision model ensures that the game is delivered to the fans in real time.

Our Product

The device we built meets the needs of football fans, and the stadiums which they're used in. It is portable and battery powered. WiFi, Bluetooth and 5G connectivity allow it to be used in any scenario. The pitch on the top surface can be changed from football to other sports, enabling us to expand our service in the near future.

How it works

How we bring the action on the field to the device.

Track

Our specialised algorithm uses computer vision to track the location of the ball on the pitch.

Connect

These exact coordinates find the location of the ball and send it to our device in real time. 

Move

Our device uses this location to move a physical finger-piece that matches the position of the ball in the game.

Feel

Haptic motors combined with auditory feedback further immerses the user in the match.
