Coming to a mobile near you is VibeTonz, with the first VibeTonz-enabled phone from Samsung due to hit the market very soon. It could be be big – but what is it?
Well, VibeTonz is an embedded technology that enables a mobile handset to produce a huge range of ‘vibro-tactile’ sensations. Or in other words, you’ll feel as well as hear. So, mobile gamers can experience the recoil of gunshots or the jolt of a punch, messaging could be personalised with vibration-based heartbeats and ringtones can give users the physical sensation of drum breaks and basslines.
All sounds interesting and possibly a little scary – more news about the technology and when you can get it very soon.
