About Us

TEGway Co, an affiliate of ThermoReal Inc., developed the world’s first high performance flexible thermoelectric device (F-TED).

Based on F-TED technology, ThermoReal Inc. is introducing ThermoReal® solution which enables game/VR/AR players to feel temperature and pain according to the game scenes with no delay.

ThermoReal® solution can be integrated to joystick, controller or game pad and ultimately, in the future, to haptic glove or VR suite.


ThermoReal® 在F-TED技术基础上提供解决方案,使玩家可以在 VR 或 AR 等游戏环境中瞬间感受到温度和疼痛。该解决方案极大地增强了现实感并使游戏体验效果更好。
