Artificial Muscle’s touch sensors can deepen the bass in headphones


>>Artificial Muscle is a partner with Immersion, a pioneering haptics firm that has a lot of patents in the fundamental technology behind touch feedback. Artificial Muscle, on the other hand, has developed technology for putting an actuator, or tiny motor, on a thin plastic film. The company can print circuitry that, when you apply power to it, makes a motor move back and forth. When attached to a solid mass such as a battery, it can make a device vibrate.
“Immersion develops the IP for the platforms such as Android,” said Schapeler. ”We create the technology and energy-efficient actuator to bring it into mobile devices.”
