Immersion Corp, the company behind the haptic tech inside Sony’s PS5 DualSense controller, has said that there’s plenty of interest in the tech from third-party peripheral manufacturers.
“I can't comment on specific engagements, but we're talking to a number of other players in that market”, Immersion Corp's Interim CEO, Jared Smith, said during a recent investor call when asked about possible other manufactures using the companies' haptics tech license. “We did announce our collaboration with StrikerVR, which is a company that makes accessory technology that's going to utilize our trigger technology. And we have those discussions ongoing with others in terms of what their shipment plans would be in terms of when they can -- whether they would intersect the holiday season, I can't comment on, but the DualSense controller is certainly sparking a lot of interest among third-party peripheral manufacturers. I just don't have a comment on timing of when that might hit.”
