About

Come discover the possibilities with haptic design in future technology and innovation, and exchange ideas with creative industry leaders at Loftwork HK! 

You will also get to play around with some of our devices and material samples such as techtile toolkit where you experience creating haptic content to communicate with others.

Sense of touch has not yet been widely used as a tool to deliver information compared to visual and auditory communications. Therefore, there are a lot for us to explore in this field. Anyone who is looking into haptic design might find inspirations for their new creations.
