It's so exciting to be in this industry right now, with all these new haptic innovations going on. If you run a mobile phone company, prepare to hire haptic designers to team up with your visual designers. It's going to be a design area in its own right.
Senseg's website has slightly more information about how their technology works.

I miss physical knobs in my interaction with computers. Maybe this crazy idea can bring us one step towards an increased use of knobs. Who knows.

An actuator that is built on a thin rubbery material. Amazing response time, ranging from 1Hz to 17kHz. It's about time someone filmed this product and put it on Youtube. For tactile feedback, I think this is an excellent candidate for a long overdue replacement of the crude motors that give modern phones their unaesthetic vibration patterns.

This future is inevitable. Start preparing now!
Today: Not having a website for your business is unthinkable.
Future: Not having your posters and other graphic promotional material registered so that they can be auto-recognized will be unthinkable.
The URL will disappear from business cards. Your company logo will act as link.
The URL field in mobile web browsers will have a camera icon.
You won't have to ask your new friends for their phone number. Just permission to take a photo of their face. Algorithms will do the rest. GPS coordinates, together with shared contacts in your social networks will give face recognition a leg up.

The gesture click+drag is a brilliant design for compact writing on small touch devices, so try to ignore the 1/awesome presentation.
You can try a palm simulator demo, at their website. In the top left area is a link to the JetKeys Demo. JetWay Technologies.

Yesterday's product launch of the TAT xHale phone, was, of course, a joke. Having someone blow air in your ear when they speak is probably just annoying. But I can't help wondering if it would be possible to make a powerful bass speaker with such a fan design...
Thanks for watching.
