Iphone-haptics is a project run by the Computing Science Department of the University of Glasgow, Scotland. Our aim with this web site is to publicly experiment with user interface design prototypes, implemented on the Apple iPhone utilising its built-in variable intensity actuator and multi-touch screen.
Current mobile device user interface elements are based on desktop widgets not originally intended for small screen finger-based interfaces. Given the dynamic nature of mobile environments, many interaction scenarios can arise and mobile UIs should be designed to accommodate these.
The term haptic, in general, refers to the sense of touch. Mobile devices can provide users with haptic feedback. Using recent devices, this feedback can be presented via a touchscreen by applying forces, vibrations or motion to the user’s fingertip. Our various different haptic UI concepts and widgets revolve around interaction afforded by fingertip controlled interfaces with an aim to revolutionise mobile device interaction design and escape traditional desktop designs haunting our mobiles today.
The majority of interaction on a mobile device is visual thus placing a huge demand on the users visual attention which can be dangerous in certain mobile situations or socially inappropriate in meetings for example. Furthermore, when interacting with a button - for example, with the fingertip - the image of the button is covered by the fingertip and therefore any visual feedback can go unnoticed.
By using HapticKB's feedback, iPhone users can actually ‘feel’ the interface and any feedback provided, reducing the visual demand and allowing for more subtle and socially appropriate interaction.
