Presentation

Victor Viegas

Okay. Great. Thank you very much. I’m Victor Viegas, the CEO of Immersion Corporation. Thank you for coming, and hopefully, I can give you a better sense of what Immersion does.

So, a few of the company highlights. Immersion is The Haptics Company. We are a company that licenses haptic technology. We’ve got world-class customer base. We’re established in large and growing markets. We’ve got a strong patent portfolio of over 1,200 issued or pending patents and we have a strong balance sheet with no debt $63 million in cash. But essentially a licensing company focus in the field of technology called haptics.

Let me tell you a little bit more about haptic. Haptic is just -- is a Greek derivative that means the signs of touch. So anytime you engage your sense of touch, tactile feel, tactile feedback, haptic, these are all descriptions for using your sense of touch.

In the real world, a thousand times a day you use your sense of touch to open up a door. You feel tension, contours, textures, pick up a cup of coffee. In the digital world you loose that physical engagement. Suddenly now, you have small controls, visual impediments, small devices, large fingers and you are trying to recreate a realistic experience but without your sense of touch it’s a dead experience really.
