Hapti Wearables

Hapti is a startup on a mission to disrupt the fitness wearables market. Recent advances in wearable monitoring technologies are enabling anyone to train like a pro. With these devices, runners can track key metrics like heart rate, pace, distance, and more. But, the way these devices communicate information to the runner slows them down due to bad habits that cause distracting behaviors by constant watch and phone checking. Hapti partnered with DiveDesign and ZSK Embroidery to integrate their haptic technology into a smart wearable for runners that provides real-time feedback and insight via vibration, without breaking a runner's flow.

The result was a hugely successful kickstarter campaign that raised over $170,000 in the first 2 weeks alone.

The DiveDesign team with Derrick Campana of Bionic Pets, and Chris Landau of Landau Design after a day of filming for Derrick's new show, Wizard of Paws.

The show follows Derrick as he travels the country saving the lives of animals in need through custom made prosthetics and orthotics. In one episode, he travels to the DiveDesgin studio and they work together to build a first of its kind, custom 3D printed prosthetic for Instagram famous dog TurboRoo.
