Nokia Applies Interactive Feel To Wireless Phone Games
Wireless phone manufacturer Nokia has recently announced its first physically interactive and most fun cell phones. The Nokia phone has integrated interactive tactile technology that allows vibrations to enhance mobile gaming.
According to Nokia, “Mobile gaming is simply electrifying with the Nokia 3310. The new vibra feature makes the phone vibrate at critical moments in gameplay - so you'll know when you've been blasted by aliens in the cool Space Impact game, or when you hit the walls in Snake II! Of course, if your prefer more sedate action, there is always Bantumi and Pairs II.” – www.nokia.com
RealTimeTouch, of Alpine, California, is an early leader in virtual touch technology and currently has international patents pending in over 100 countries. They have plans to license the technology to manufacturers, content developers, and service providers in the related wired and wireless industries. www.realtimetouch.com
RealTimeTouch has a broad vision for the applications of virtual touch. Imagine a child being able to squeeze her beeper to return her mother’s page rather than having to find a telephone. Imagine the same pager or cell phone also updating the child’s location for mom. Business people could simply grasp their cell phone to communicate with the office instead of trying to dial a mobile phone in the middle of traffic. The personal, business, medical, therapy, and fun benefits are practically endless.
