MWC | Fujitsu tablet showed transmitting tactile sensations




Fujitsu Haptic Sensory Tablet

Mobile devices have come a long way, so the emergence of touchscreen that allows to feel the texture of the image, it was only a matter of time. It may sound unlikely, but the technology is ready for mass deployment. In passing these days the exhibition Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Japanese technology company Fujitsu introduced the tablet with an unusual touch screen.

Unveiled Fujitsu prototype tablet allows users to feel the textured surface images displayed on the screen. The so-called haptic technology Haptic was developed by Fujitsu Laboratories.

This technology realizes the haptics smooth or rough surface, which until now has been difficult to obtain on the touchscreen. Users can experience realistic tactile sensations when touching virtual objects on the screen, the statement said Fujitsu.

Transmission technology of image texture by vibrating the touch screen or the generation of an electrostatic field are not new. However, Fujitsu first to use ultrasonic vibrations to transmit tactile sensations, changing the friction force between the touch screen and the user’s finger, writes resource ITProPortal.

Thus, generation of acoustic vibrations at the surface of the touch screen creates a high pressure in the layer of air between the user’s finger the screen surface, thereby reducing friction. This phenomenon allows you to modify the surface properties. Adjusting the frictional force can be transmitted unevenness and roughness of the image.

Opportunities tactile screen Fujitsu demonstrated on the example photos crocodile. Everyone could feel the touch of a digital crocodile skin. The company hopes to bring the technology to market by next year. Tactile technology can be widely used in consumer electronics and specialized devices, such as for the blind .

In addition, during the MWC-2014 Fujitsu announced plans to release this fall successor smartphone Stylistic S010. Machine receives a 4-core processor, support for LTE, NFC and will be sold in Europe.
