9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Haptics
are an essential feature of the user experience (UX) platform in many electronic products today.
com)-- The Haptics
technology is an interface between the user and the connected device that provides tactile feedback and force feedback to the users through the sense of touch by applying vibrations, forces and motion to the users.
According to the report, Immersion is the only technology provider in the market that has a broad range of patents related to haptics
The TopCoder challenge series will center on the convergence of haptics
, virtual reality and 3D printing to create a digital thread that opens up new worlds of human-machine interaction.
In addition, haptics
offer designers flexibility to create unique, highly customized interior design throughout the car, in many cases at a lower cost than implementing similar capabilities through mechanical equivalents.
(that is, tactilo-kinesthetic perception) plays a key role in our cognitive and perceptual development (Hatwell, Streri, & Gentaz, 2003).
Washington, August 09 (ANI): A new tactile technology has been developed at Disney Research, Pittsburgh (DRP) dubbed Surround Haptics
that will send shivers down your spine.
The company said that as touchscreens become the industry standard interface for portable and consumer devices, its investments become increasingly relevant to manufacturers, including smartphone and tablet OEMs, looking to enhance their devices through haptics
The wider use of haptics
in touch-screen devices is having a dramatic impact in the electronics industry, says Mike Levin, vice president of Immersion Corp.
is a pioneering North company which specialises in developing medical training products using virtual reality technology.

Several authors have explored the idea of haptic
representation of spatial objects, including Griffin (2001), who includes a basic taxonomy for spatial representation through haptics
, and Andrews (1983) who explores the use of haptic
textures to replace two-dimensional density shading for interpretation of areal fills for categorical data.
