Description


Bring haptics to your games! This content is designed to integrate the bHaptics TactSuit technology into Unreal 4 projects and other C++ based platforms. This plugin provides functionality to connect to the bHaptics Player and allow developers to send Haptic feedback to the bHaptic TactSuit range of devices. The plugin also supports blueprints, allowing developers to easily integrate into existing projects, as well as a simple UI to visualise the feedback during development. Simply drag the bHapticsManager into the game level and create a reference in any other blueprint or c++ class to it to access the functionality. The system supports both preset feedback files as well as on-the-fly computed feedback. Two example dummy blueprints are also included to demonstrate how to map the feedback to an avatar, either as points on a surface or accessing individual motors.
