Haptics Gets All Touchy Feely
from the poke dept
Wired has an article about the world of haptics. That is, adding “touch” to the whole computer user interface. They talk about things like having your car seat tap your shoulder so you realize there’s a car in your blind spot. People can respond very quickly to things that touch them – often before they would respond if they just saw something. Of course, there’s also the possibility that such things might just be a bit creepy.
