Haptic Interface

Technologies turn to touch with vibration-based feedback features

Implications - As the expansion of the Internet of Things continues to connect us with an increasing number of objects, products are being designed with haptic feedback that relies on a user's sense of touch to communicate pertinent information. This shift speaks to the progression towards a relationship between consumers and technology that no longer requires an interface, but is instead almost entirely intuitive.
