A Touching Tale.

UK research pioneer, NXT is making touch screens touch back, signing an exclusive deal with Japan‘s Nissha Printing Company. Engineers from both companies will collaborate to bring NXT‘s bending wave technology to market on small touch screens. NXT also revealed it had used a piezo actuator to introduce bending waves into a touch panel to create a loudspeaker.
Since the birth of touch screen technology engineers have sought ways to create more tactile, responsive and natural effects for users, otherwise known as “haptic“ technologies. The word haptic is derived from the Greek word pertaining to the sense of touch. Now NXT says its new technology will not only allow users to feel vibrations on the screen but will produce high-quality audio directly from the touch screen.
