Tactile Telerobot


The World’s First Haptic Telerobot Hand

Tactile Telerobot is the world’s first haptic robotic system that transmits realistic touch feedback to an operator located anywhere in the world. For the first time, users can use their hands naturally to control robotic equipment and feel what robots feel as they manipulate objects.

Sending touch across the globe for remote teleoperation and telepresence.

Now you can feel and complete tasks at a location without physically being there.

Available to purchase! Demos can be arranged upon request.

Who is it for?

Anyone looking to:

Apply a tool for highly dexterous manipulation

Add a safety layer between the operator and the task

Create an immersive and interactive experience

Increase productivity, efficiency and reliability

Optimise processes with advanced precision and accuracy


Key Components:

Shadow Dexterous Hand

The world’s most advanced, human-like and dexterous robot hands available on the market. It’s the ONLY robot hand on the market to have 24 movements and 20 degrees of freedom (DOF) for increased flexibility in grasping and manipulating a range of objects.

SynTouch Sensors

Dr Jeremy Fishel, Founder of Tangible Research and former CTO of SynTouch, gives the Tactile Telerobot these biomimetic sensors which capture force, temperature, pressure, and vibration with equal resolution to a human finger

HaptX Gloves

HaptX Gloves give you precise control and deliver realistic haptic feedback, simulating touch felt by robotic hands. HaptX Gloves use advanced haptic technology to bring realistic touch, force feedback, and precise motion tracking to virtual reality for business


The system also uses safe, flexible, and easy-to-use 6-axis industrial robotic arms from Universal Robots.

Funded and facilitated by ANA and is available to buy from the participants of the $10M ANA Avatar XPRIZE as well as industries.
