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.”
