Redux Labs has announced its spin out from HiWave Technologies. The company will be led by HiWave's former CEO and CTO, James Lewis and Chris Travis and will enable Redux to advance its Surface Sensation technology for third generation haptic and embedded audio technology.

Redux plans to deliver a range of haptic/touch and audio transducers, electronic control modules and chipsets, evaluation platforms and bespoke system development for multiple market sectors.

The company's Surface Sensation use patented techniques that precisely control bending sub-sonic audio waves across a screen to deliver 3D Haptics functionality. The technology's configurability allows OEM product developers to accurately mimic the tactile and acoustic sensations of real-world user inputs such as sliders or a specific button presses on a flat panel such as a display.

Redux has also developed products that turn a screen or panel into a high quality, forward facing loud speaker, delivering crisp and clear full-range audio directly to the listener. Ideally suited to the latest toughened glass technologies used in consumer products, Surface Sensation targets flat-screen TVs, laptops, phones and tablet PCs, in which it will replace internal micro speakers, and deliver a higher standard of audio without compromising on the aesthetics. However, the technology also delivers top quality audio and compelling haptics from other material surfaces including metal, plastics and composites.

"Redux will focus on advancing and commercialising haptic and audio solutions, and to develop ground breaking technology that redefines the user experience in an increasingly touch-display oriented world," Lewis said.
