Immersion has unveiled a new first of its kind concept for laptops and portable devices that applies haptics technology to personal computer applications. Immersion TouchSense technology can be combines with remote awareness to enable user experiences involving sight, sound and touch to improve productivity and multiplayer games.

A demo of the new user experience has players playing a game where they can feel the motion of a pinball while the ball is in play on another networked computer. It's cool that you can feel what is happening on another computer across the room or around the world.

“The sense of touch is fundamental to the future of user experience in digital devices, and our demonstration is another milestone in that evolution,” said Clent Richardson, chief executive officer of Immersion. “Simply put, without haptics, touchscreen devices simply will not realize their full potential. From mobile phones to gaming devices, and now with much-anticipated laptops and other portables moving quickly to touch screens, our haptic technology provides richer, more engaging and fulfilling experiences.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
