FAQs

  • What technologies are required?

    Emerge Home includes the Emerge Wave-1 device, Emerge Home Quest 2 app, and Emerge Home mobile app.

    Our product requires and works alongside the Quest 2 headset, which is not included.

  • How does the Emerge Wave-1 work?

    The Emerge Wave-1 device emits programmable ultrasound waves to create a tangible mid-air force field around virtual objects and interactions.

    It helps you physically feel what you see and hear in the Emerge Home Quest 2 app.

  • Is ultrasound safe?

    We value safety with the utmost importance.

    Ultrasound has been used for over 20 years in various fields such as medical imaging and is common place for a growing range of consumer products such as burglar alarms, motion detection light switches, automated vehicle sensors, and parametric loudspeakers.

    The specific ultrasound emitted by the Emerge Wave-1 device is reflected by the skin - our hands act like a mirror and that allows us to physically feel the pressure.

    In addition to years of comprehensive internal safety standards and testing, the Emerge Wave-1 device has also passed through rigorous independent, third party testing, and is FCC certified.

  • What kind of research and development went into Emerge Home?

    We've been developing Emerge Home for almost 6 years. Emerge systems, interfaces, and structures are currently protected by U.S. patents granted and pending.

    We are also actively testing our product with participants in our in-house user research lab and remotely in their homes.
