A new patent app has turned up that Apple filed back in April of 2009. The application is interesting because it outlines a cool method Apple dreamed up of offering haptics feedback with multitouch screens.

The application was titled "Multi Touch with Multi Haptics" and I bet we see the tech turn up on the iPad and the iPhone eventually. The patent shows a method of putting numerous haptic actuators behind the touchscreen.

With multiple actuators, Apple can provide different haptic feedback reactions for different gestures on a multiple touch screen. That would presumably mean you could do a gesture like pinch and feel one type of feedback and then swipe to change pages and get a different haptic sensation.

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.
