Tactile and Haptic
A technology can be receptive or sensitive to physical touch and can be designed to produce physically sensible effects.
• Buttons, dials and switches are examples of well-established, physical touch-based interfaces.
• Touch capacitive sensors are used as input devices on laptop computers, mobile phones and computers.
• Many mobile phones employ haptic response technology (in the form of vibration) as an optional alternative to audible alerts.
• Virtual reality incorporates haptic responses to simulate physical sensations.
