Rumble Feedback

Rumble feedback is when the interface returns low-fidelity shakes or rumbles to the user, in order to provide general vibration, to compliment what is going on inside the virtual environment, yet not actually sync with it. Used whenever a 'white noise' pattern of touch or balance feedback is required.

Packbot to gain Haptic Feedback
In October 2009, iRobot announced that they would be receiving additional funding from the US Robotics Technology Consortium. They plan to use much of this money to add full haptic feedback technology to their heavy-duty robots.

A teledildonics interface, the thrillhammer materialised shortly after the sinulator. It sort of resembles the bastard child of a flogiston chair, a sinulator, and a rumble machine. The original was a sort of cross-pairing between a dentists' chair and a gynaecological exam table, thankfully they have come a long way since then.

Touchscreen Use in All Weather
Industry News

Touchscreen technology has until now, had one strong disadvantage: In inclement weather, wet, freezing cold hands result from touchscreen use, as gloves and other finger protectors have always made fingers too big and bulky to effectively use touchscreen technology, whilst masking tactile feedback with the glove?s spongy surface.

Revolutionizing Prosthetics 2009 Team Delivers First DARPA Limb Prototype
An international team led by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in the US, has developed a prototype of the first fully integrated prosthetic arm that can be controlled naturally, including the provision of sensory feedback and allows for eight degrees of freedom. This is an order of magnitude beyond previous efforts, including the haptic arm of Claudia Mitchell.
