For Stanford University’s open source haptic device called Hapkit, Seeed designed and made an all-in-one controller board called “Hapkit Board” to reduce the costs on microcontrollers and amplifications that support the Hapkit. This Hapkit Project witnessed a dramatic cost reduction in building educational haptic devices compared to previous models, as well as facilitated convenient learning for learners without mechanical knowledge. In this way, this Project contributes to the UN’s SDGs 4, 5 and 17.
