STORY BEHIND

In 2014, Dr. Jussi Tuovinen, an award-winning engineer and scientist found himself in a long-distance relationship. While he was working in Ireland, his family lived in Finland.

Despite the variety of options of staying in touch with his wife, Jussi noticed he was still missing something. The feeling of true closeness just was not fully deliverable through mere words and seeing each other on-screen.

Jussi saw this as a challenge; where there is the problem, there is a solution. Jussi together with his co-founder, Mr. Kai Martesuo researched different types of technical solutions and human psychology to create a humane real-life experience of touch that can be sent over distance.

So began the story of JoyHaptics in 2015. To this day, Jussi and Kai have been perfecting the product to convey a true experience of caress and closeness.

We all have a fundamental, psychological and physical need to touch and to be touched. Joyhaptic’s science-based technology is helping in a long-distance relationship and beyond.

Now we need family and friendship bonds more than ever.
