Apple Reveals Haptic Alert Upgrade for iPhone


>> Apple's patent application describes a newly designed vibrator that's to be integrated into a future iPhone as part of a haptic alert system. The haptic device is noted as having a linear electric motor that is coupled to actively drive a moveable weight in back-and-forth directions to produce the desired vibration. A lock mechanism has a restraining member that is biased into a lock position, which prevents the moveable weight from moving in the back-and-forth directions when the vibrator is inactive.
