Apple’s New Patent Could Provide Haptic Vibration Feedback to iPads


>>Basically, this technology would allow users to feel a slight vibration on the tips of their fingers when they touched a letter on the virtual keyboard. We all know that touch-typing on the iPad’s keyboard is nearly impossible, simply because there is no tactile sensation for users to connect with. Haptic vibrations could, at least, add a virtual version of the little raised bump on the “F” and “J” keys so you can feel the return position better.  This could potentially make the useless touch screen keyboard somewhat useful.
