Now..Haptic Sensory Tablets

Is this it the next stage of evolution of tablets? Fujitsu Labs unveiled a prototype of haptic sensory tablet. So what is haptic sensory – it means that when you touch, say, an image on a tablet, you feel the image! So if you touch an image of a beach, you could potentially feel like you are touching sand!

Fujitsu Labs new haptic sensor simulates 3D geometric features like bumps, ridges, depressions, etc. on a tablet surface!! Amazing, isn’t it? I know we expect Apple to innovate on everything related to tablets, phones, wearable devices (?) but maybe this time it will be someone different?

For those interested in details, read this slightly dry press release (they are Japanese – not marketing savvy Americans) from Fujitsu.
