Late breaking iPad rumor: Screen to have haptic technology


The screen would give tactile feedback. Small electrical charges designed to trick your brain into feeling just about any texture or even have these textures move under your fingertips.

For instance, when typing on the virtual keyboard, you would feel the keys on your fingers as though it was a physical keyboard.

That was different. This is completely new tech. You actually feel textures. Not just a vibrate when you type a letter.

quote:

Senseg turns touch screens into Feel Screens. With Senseg touch screens come alive with textures, contours and edges that users can feel. Using Senseg technology, makers of tablet computers, smart phones, and any touch interface device can deliver revolutionary user experiences with high fidelity tactile sensations. Your customers will Feel the Difference with Senseg.


ETA: I'll believe it when I see it in the new iPad.

So are you saying that you feel the difference in height between the keys?

That's a little too much don't you think?

I've never used it, so I don't know exactly how it would feel. Like I said though, take this one with a grain of salt.

Seems a little fricking ridiculous. How much more expensive will that make it?

I blew it off as just more rumor hysteria until I read this:

quote:

Now, when asked whether Apple licensed their technology, a company spokesman told the publication that “We won’t be making any statements until after Apple’s announcement”.

I thought it was crap when I tried out a friend's droid, so I don't think it's a good idea. BOOM!

Are you suggesting they didn't'?

quote:

Multi-touch display screen with localized tactile feedback

Abstract
Systems, methods, computer-readable media, and other means are described for utilizing touch-based input components that provide localized haptic feedback to a user. The touch-based input components can be used and/or integrated into any type of electronic device, including laptop computers, cellular telephones, and portable media devices. The touch-based input components can use, for example, a grid of piezoelectric actuators to provide vibrational feedback to a user, while the user scrolls around a click wheel, slides across a trackpad, or touches a multi-touch display screen.

And this....


quote:

"The aim is to make a corrugated surface feel corrugated, a rough surface rough, a soft surface soft.? The first products will ship by the end of this year and again Nokia is not Senseg's first port of call. 'We are currently working with a certain tablet maker based in Cupertino,' reveals Senseg senior vice president Ville Mäkinen."
