Haptic feedback enables keys on the keyboard, a virtual keyboard, you actually feel yourself pushing buttons and keys. You can create cool effects in games, you probably experienced that in the gaming space for many, many years, scrolling, swiping, textures, tension, all of these things engage a sense of touch.
