Consumer electronics manufacturer reaffirms value of touch with license to expand use in its top-end models
The new agreement builds on an existing agreement between the two companies to enhance LG mobile devices with quality haptic capabilities. Immersion's HD TouchSense technology is a high-fidelity, system-level solution supporting standard-definition and high-definition (SD/HD) effects. It delivers a high-end, immersive experience for flagship phones and other premium devices.
"Touch feedback is shown to be a strong feature in mobile devices. It
provides a quality design aesthetic that appeals to users' sense of
touch, as well as a tactile user interface that makes it easier for
consumers to interact with their devices," said
Immersion's TouchSense technology enables device manufacturers to simulate the connected experiences of the real world. With TouchSense technology, device manufacturers, app developers and UX designers can design high-quality, power-efficient tactile effects that enhance the user experience for mobile apps and device UI.
