Haptic Quick Start GuideDon’t settle on just a basic buzz vibration! Feel the difference between the rapid weapon fire of a machine gun…‘tat, tat, tat’ versus the resonating “boom” of a double-barrel shotgun.

Immersion’s Haptic SDK includes the code needed to create a Universal Haptic Layer to enable touch feedback instantly in Android applications. Significantly cut down development time – eliminate the need to specify motor on/off times. Included in the UHL file is a library of 124 pre-designed tactile effects, that has many choices from categories like: UI, weapons, collision, engine or alerts. The UHL file comes in the form of a JAR file and .SO file and contains all the classes, interfaces, and algorithms necessary to create great haptics.
