Junior Robotics Engineer

‘SenseGlove enables real touch in the digital world: we make the digital feel real.’


What is SenseGlove about? 

Founded in 2015, SenseGlove enables real touch in the digital world. Our playing field is Virtual Reality. With our haptic wearable gloves, we take the VR world a big step further. Imagine wearing our gloves… and being allowed to feel the shapes, textures, stiffness, impacts, and resistance of any virtual object, so you can truly experience digital worlds.


Our haptic gloves will change virtual reality training forever by allowing muscle memory to be formed. Can you imagine the revolution this will bring in terms of impact? We can. And so can our customers, for example, VW, Airbus, Scania, Honda, Cambridge University, TNO, Fraunhofer, Siemens, and many more.
