Fujitsu develops tablet with sensory touchscreen
The company has developed a prototype tablet with new haptic technology that allows you to feel different textures on the touchscreen. For example, if you were to drag your finger over a picture of your beach vacation, you'd be able to feel the grains of sand, or you could run you finger over your beach towel and feel the softness of the fabric.
If this sounds familiar, that's because Fujitsu isn't the first to try this. Other companies, such as Senseg and Immersion, offer similar technologies using electrical components to simulate the feeling of different textures.
