Good Vibrations

Shake-centric innovation spawns a variety of functional products

Implications - For most of us, vibrations are associated with the shaking of our cellphones (and perhaps other more risqué devices), but now an increasing number of innovators are applying "shake" technology to augment the operation and performance of some products, including alarm clocks, sports gear and dental appliances. Giving off both a tactile and audible element, these vibrating devices aim to enhance the user experience as well as provide superior functionality.
