Definition Edit

Haptic technology (also called haptics) is

a tactile feedback technology which takes advantage of the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, or motions to the user. The most prevalent use of haptic technology is the vibrator in cellphones and smartphones.[1]

Overview Edit

This mechanical stimulation may be used to assist in the creation of virtual objects (objects existing only in a computer simulation), for control of such virtual objects, and to enhance the remote control of machines and devices (teleoperators).
