Additional Information

hAPI is a low-level API for controlling the Haply 2DIY device. In its basic form, it handles communication between the host and device and mapping between positions and forces within the device’s workspace and angles and torques used by the hardwware itself. hAPI can also be combined with physics engines such as Fisica for convenience.

For more information on hAPI, please consult the GitLab repository, the 2DIY development kit page, and the hAPI/Fisica repository.
