Razer, a well-known hardware and gaming peripheral manufacturer, has been expanding its support to include various gaming platforms such as PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Meta Quest 2, X-input controllers, iOS, and Android devices for game engines such as Unity and Unreal Engine.

Interhaptics, the leading haptic technology platform, has made significant progress with its latest release.

The new technology promises to bring a new level of realism to games, immersing players in the action and making them feel like they are part of the game.

Furthermore, Razer has also introduced its new programmable directional HD haptics technology, which promises to provide an even more immersive gaming experience. Developers can now sign up for the waiting list for the Razer Kraken V3 HyperSense Dev Kit with programmable directional HD haptics at the Interhaptics website. This kit will allow developers to create even more engaging and immersive gaming experiences with directional haptics that provide more realistic feedback.

Overall, Razer’s new Interhaptics universal HD haptic SDK and directional haptics promise to revolutionize the gaming industry by providing developers with the tools they need to create immersive and realistic gaming experiences.
