Smartphone Recreates The Sensation Of Buttons On A Touchscreen

KDDI displayed a smartphone which accurately recreates the sensation of using physical buttons on a touch panel at Wireless Japan 2011. This function of feeling a click is achieved by a combining a vibration function and a pressure sensor in a Haptic touch panel developed by Kyocera.

When you input letters, in addition to the visual feedback, you now get a feeling that you have pushed something and made it move, and KDDI believe that will result in faster input. When you use a menu, and touch or move between icons, it feels as if you are touching or moving across buttons, and if you press lightly, you get a stronger clicking feeling as you select an application.
