SENSEG PROTOTYPE OF A HAPTIC DISPLAY
Senseg has developed a prototype of its touch screen to show its potential. The technology can be applied to screen qaulsiasi tablet, Android, Apple or Microsoft.Interesting implications for gaming.
Senseg is a European company that has developed a proprietary technology that allows you to create a special touchscreen display with tactile feedback. In practice, instead of the usual vibration or another, touch the screen can convey the feeling of many different types of surfaces, from silk to stone. Colleagues from CNet , who have had the opportunity to test it in preview, the panel confirmed the ability to transmit tactile sensations Senseg very varied and credible.
The technology, called Tixelio, is based on a principle known as Coulomb’s that, when applied to a magnetic field such as that produced by a capacitive display, you can modify it to exert more or less attractive relative to the surface of the fingertips , resulting in a specific sense of friction, can simulate many different surfaces.
Unlike other technologies, haptic feedback also Senseg Tixelio does not involve any physical change to the screen, no moving parts or other, which means that the technology is potentially already integrated, the displays exist. Just buy the technology itself and the accompanying software, to act as a controller and programming.
According to Dave Rice, a representative of the company, there are already contacts with various companies and the technology could make its appearance even as early as next year or two at most. Indeed Senseg Tixelio seems to be promising and opens up different scenariosprimarily for gaming, but also for all those applications that could allow to perform tasks without the need to always look at the tablet, allowing for example to recognize the buttons or other controls as compared to the rest using only touch the surface.
At the moment however there is nothing certain, we’ll see if it really Senseg Tixelio become reality or if they remain in the limbo of the many promising technologies but never implemented in a consumer device, for one reason or another.
