Make appliances easier to use through high-quality tactile effects and feedback.

Intuitive appliance displays feature buttons and dials with haptic definition.

High-quality tactile effects and feedback incorporated into the touch panels of ovens, washing machines, and refrigerators create a more intuitive interface and enhance how users interact with appliances. In flat panel displays, haptics can provide programmable buttons that can change with the interface. For example, haptics applied to the flat-screen touch panel provides the sensation of pushing physical buttons on a washer or feeling the clicks to adjust temperature on a freezer; tactile feedback confirms each action. As users are scrolling through multiple menus, the haptic buttons can be anywhere on the screen.
