New haptic texture

a post by cellodude on the IV MB:

>>New haptic texture info & short vid from IMMR, CES 2009/Las Vegas

I didn't realize IMMR was experimenting with texture haptics, but they are. I think the guys at U. of Glasgow are too but not with vibration, maybe with dense pin arrays?

[Haptics Are Happening

... One demo at Immersion Corp.'s booth featured several different textures displayed on a single touchscreen. As you moved your fingers over the different textures, the screen vibrates at different frequencies, creating a realistic textile feel. This video doesn't do it justice, but you can at least see the different textures.]
