Pulse Brings Haptic Feedback to iPhone
Haptic feedback has been around for a very long time, jiggling your handset ever so slightly when you tap on the virtual keyboard or hit a virtual button. For better or for worse, the iPhone lacks this feature. Well, that’s effectively changing today with the announcement of the Pulse.
Mophie and ViviTouch have partnered up to produce this iAccessory and it’s mostly catering to the folks who use their iPhones to play games. It’s like an iPhone case, except the goal is to give you haptic feedback, letting you “feel the difference between hundreds of sensations, not just the one-buzz-fits-all vibration before.”
This is nothing like having physical gaming controls, but if you’re looking for a little vibe to go with your Angry Birds, I guess this is it. The Mophie branded device, which doesn’t appear to have any battery-boosting functionality like its other Mophie cousins, also rocks a couple of stereo speakers. No word on price, but the Pulse is “coming soon” to an iRetailer near you.
