Feel the Touch in the air
Touch technology has developed a lot in last few years. Just six years ago most phones and gadgets used keypads; these days almost all smartphones have touchscreen and all the gadgets, tablets and even laptops comes with touch technology.
One thing that is missing that we cannot feel the touch of the screen or the games that we are playing as all commands and games are played using just a touch interface including the pictures.
Seems like the next decade would be a revolution in what will be known as “haptic” devices. One new technology announced in October 2013 by Walt Disney Company that allows users to feel the texture of the picture or anything on the touchscreen. The future of gadgets would not just be limited to hearing and seeing but to feel the touch of what is on the screen.
Haptic technology is a science of touch and users will be able to feel the physical aspect of it. Yes, you’ll be able to feel the touch in the air.
This will no doubt revolutionize the gaming experience but once introduced in smartphones would become as common as touchscreen smartphones of today. The future of the touch technology is on the way. So, are you ready to feel the touch in the air?
