FAQs

  • What is Emerge?

    We founded the company out of a desire to enable meaningful shared experiences – experiences that nurture and enrich relationships from any distance – through technology. Our focus is to create a new standard for shared digital experiences by adding touch to immersive experiences.

    If you think of a phone or a video conferencing service, the two senses used are sight and sound, but even with those senses, you feel distant from the person or people you are speaking with. And that physical distance can sometimes become emotional distance. We want to bridge that physical and emotional distance by adding a third sense –– a new dimension –– to the mix: touch.

    Today, with our technology, not only can you add a sense of touch to a virtual object, but you can also share that same object with someone across the world. It is still early days, but ultimately our goal is to bring people closer together through touch.
