    Immersion's new piezo electric actuator makes a pin ball game on a tablet pc feel like you are playing on an actual pin ball machine. The tablet pc uses the piezo which is a tiny ceramic slip that sits on a pcb and mounted in the bezel of the laptop. The piezo moves the screen gently. Every touch on the screen feels different, so that the experience now also includes high definition haptic effects. Now pulse, hertz and intensity can be manipulated. Haptics can be used in the automotive environment to keep the driver's eyes on the road by providing tactile feedback from the screen. Mobile phone manufacturers are now using haptics to create a richer mobile phone experience.
