FAQs

  • What technologies are required?

    Emerge Home includes the Emerge device, Emerge Home Oculus Quest app, and Emerge Home mobile app. Our product requires and works alongside the Oculus Quest 1 or 2, which is not included.

  • How does the Emerge device work?

    The Emerge device uses ultrasound waves to create a tangible mid-air force around virtual objects and interactions. It helps you feel what you see and hear in the Emerge Home Oculus Quest 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 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 device has also passed through rigorous independent, third party testing.

  • 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.
