Kicker Studio – Artificial Muscle : Designing for Haptics

  • Provide a new way to interact with phones and network services that can be as powerful and useful as the sense of touch itself
  • Improve user performance (speed and accuracy) and reduce complication and stress
  • Increase user satisfaction – people prefer tactile feedback in their mobile phone interactions
  • Enhance the subscriber experience by making phones more intuitive and usable and services more satisfying
