Tablet Lets People Feel Textures On Screen
Fujitsu's haptic technology recreates real worldtactile sensibility using ultrasonic waves.
The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week set the stage for a new type of tablet from Fujitsu that could completely change the landscape for touchscreen devices. Using ultrasonic waves that vibrate the air just above the screen, it’s possible to change the texture for different objects currently on display. This means you can feel the sand at the beach, or the leathery hide of a snake, along with countless other materials that appear in the real world.
