<p><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;">Imagine feeling the rumble of the road in the palms of your hands, or the feel of strumming guitar strings on your smartphone, portable gaming device or tablet computer. Haptics enhances the user experience in digital devices by appealing to the one sense that often goes overlooked -- touch. Haptics, by definition, refers to the sense of touch and is a technology that adds tactile feedback through the use of vibrations.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;">Mark Toth, Business Development Manager for audio, touch and sensing products at Texas Instruments, showcases the mobile devices that use TI&rsquo;s haptic feedback technology. The DRV8662, for example, is the first piezoelectric haptic driver chip and Mark demonstrates it in a smartphone and tablet computer. The DRV8662 provides 200-V peak-to-peak drive voltage from a 5-V supply, and offers a solution size less than 100mm<sup>2</sup>. It provides a wide variety of effects and experiences for gaming and other interactive applications.</span></p> <p><img style="visibility: hidden; width: 0px; height: 0px;" src="*xJmx*PTEzNTc3ODczNjYwMzUmcHQ9MTM1Nzc4NzM4OTA5NyZwPSZkPSZnPTImbz1iMGRmMmRiZThkMGM*YmRhYTBmOTI3MzU*/ZGJmOGRkZCZvZj*w.gif" border="0" height="0" width="0" /][object name="kaltura_player_1357787347" id="kaltura_player_1357787347" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allownetworking="all" allowfullscreen="true" data="" height="330" width="400">[param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /][param name="allowNetworking" value="all" /][param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /][param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /][param name="movie" value="" /][param name="flashVars" value="" /]<a href="">video platform</a><a href="">video management</a><a href="">video solutions</a><a href="">video player</a>[/object]</p> <p><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;">If you aren't in Las Vegas at CES 2013, keep an eye out for updates from the show on this blog and on <a href="">Twitter</a> and <a href="">Facebook</a>.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; font-size: small;"><br /]</span></p>
