This one is totally unique. It is an Arduino compatible board with a built in motor controller. That isn't the unique part, though. The purpose of this controller is to apply a programmed force to a paddle to simulate the resistance of a mechanism. A real world example might be seen in the control stick of an aircraft as it begins to stall. Many have a motor similar to the vibrator in a cell phone. This motor begins to shake the stick to alert the pilot of the impending stall. That is haptics.
What has that got to do with Arduino? The people at Stanford University got together with Seeed Studios to produce a controller board for use in the study of haptics. The Hapkit was born. In addition to a fairly hefty motor controller, it has unspecified sensor inputs that are intended to connect to their paddle thing.
