Immersion has announced that Nokia has licensed the use of their touch feedback system VibeTonz, reports GamesOnDeck.
The way the system works, the VibeTonz Media Player is embedded in mobile devices, and developers can then use the VibeTonz SDK to control the Media Player and provide a tactile response to users.
“This license with Nokia supports the potential for very widespread use of our VibeTonz System - and the VibeTonz System supports the potential for a much fuller, more multisensory experience for users,” said Immersion CEO Victor Viegas. “With VibeTonz technology, Nokia can very purposefully access the sense of touch and add value throughout the mobile device.”
Under the terms of the deal, Nokia has the right to embed the technology in any of their mobile devices. Immersion will also provide the SDK to Nokia’s developer community Forum Nokia.
