Despite the massive interest in haptic feedback in mixed reality, the widerange of applications, and the prosperous outlook for the mixed realitymarket, few haptic technologies are commercially available.

Haptic feedback can be used to substitute or relief other modalities, simplifying the interaction, making it perceived with less effort or increase the comfort.
Object interactions can be based on human interaction patterns to reach a more seamless, intuitive or emotional experience
Due to the seamless integration, haptic feedback can be used in critical situations without disrupting the users' perception.
Haptic feedback can be used to create intuitive guiding systems by utilising multiple actuators or directional feedback.
Haptic feedback can be used to communicate brand values or brand specific characteristics.
Digital haptic feedback allows to tailor the feedback to each interaction.
Haptic feedback can lead to different product designs by replacing mechanical interfaces with surface haptics.
Haptic feedback can be utilised to make interactions more rich, prominent or to add a certain characteristic.
Haptic feedback is great for inclusive interactions and support application for both visually or hearing impaired users.
