Growth in the touchscreen market has accelerated adoption of haptics in mobile phones. Through world-class partners such as Samsung, LG, Nokia and others, haptic technology is moving from a nice-to-have consideration to a fundamental design requirement for next-generation mobile devices. We live in an increasingly touchscreen world and our haptics bring these screens to life.
“HAPTICS”– a technology that adds the sense of touch to virtual environment. Haptic interfaces allow the user to feel as well as to see virtual objects on a computer, and so we can give an illusion of touching surfaces, shaping virtual clay or moving objects around.
The sensation of touch is the brain’s most effective learning mechanism –more effective than seeing or hearing—which is why the new technology holds so much promise as a teaching tool.
Haptic technology is like exploring the virtual world with a stick. If you push the stick into a virtual balloon push back .The computer communicates sensations through a haptic interface –a stick, scalpel, racket or pen that is connected to a force-exerting motors.
With this technology we can now sit down at a computer terminal and touch objects that exist only in the “mind” of the computer. By using special input/output devices (joysticks, data gloves, or other devices), users can receive feedback from computer applications in the form of felt sensations in the hand or other parts of the body.
In combination with a visual display, haptics technology can be used to train people for tasks requiring hand-eye coordination, such as surgery and space ship maneuvers.
