Is the Android mobile platform ready for touch feedback technology already? That is what Immersion Corporation, a developer of haptic (touch) technology believes, saying this week its technology is now available for implementation in Android phones.
Immersion says its technology delivers a broad range of touch feedback effects to make user interface features, applications, and downloadable, multimedia content more intuitive and engaging. It works with a vibration actuator to produce tactile effects with “unprecedented subtlety and dynamics.”
The company further says its technology is already in over 40 million handsets, including models using the Symbian, Windows Mobile, and LiMo OS platforms. Maybe it is time for Android makers to get on board as well?
