Artificial Muscle has been working on improving haptic feedback for gadgets for the last six months. Here, a Lenovo IdeaPad has been outfitted with Artificial Muscle's proprietary actuators underneath the touch pad (shown sitting on top).
When mousing over different areas of a screen, haptic feedback, which feels like a buzz or small vibration, will be felt in the touch pad of the computer. The actuators respond to audio signals in the computer and cause the haptic feedback.
