A new sensation in touch screens

Reporting from the Global Gaming Expo (G2E), KioskMarketplace tells us about a new haptic feedback touchscreen made by Immersion Corporation, whose vice president is Mike Levin, formerly of Scala fame.

As the article explains, "TouchSense technology enables touchscreens to generate tactile cues, promoting a more intuitive, engaging and natural experience for the player. Players perceive that on-screen buttons press and release as if they were physical buttons. In addition, TouchSense tactile sensations can be synchronized with sound and graphical images, creating a more immersive, multisensory experience."

Neat stuff.
