A video demonstrating haptic touch screen technology published by Disney Research on YouTube. It has been receiving quite a bit of attention this week.
Haptic technology is something I have been interested in since Apple started filing for patents on the technology several years ago. Earlier this year some of these patent applications have begun to be granted.
We may not have much longer to wait to see this technology make its way into the Apple products. There may even be an outside chance that a haptic touch screeen will be the surprise feature of the new iPad when it is announced later this month. I hope there is.
