Immersion's CEO Presents At 14th Annual Needham Growth Conference (Transcript)

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.

In medical simulation, this is how doctors practice on a digital patient, but they use their sense of touch to feel a [cogdaughtary] or navigating through small tubes into to find tumors and so on. And so, haptic is something that is important in the user experience and one in which emerging in the digital world enables.

We operate as I said in large and growing markets and so these are few of the focused verticals that we operate in, mobile phones is the largest over 1.5 billion phones sold each year. Here is where you’re adding haptics to game play, GUI interfaces, texting, typing input.

Automotive, another large market where driver distraction is the key impediment a problem, so you want to be able to provide as much information whether it’s touching a screen, rotating a rotary knob or navigating a touch surface, all haptic enhancements and also large market.

Consumer markets, commercial markets gaming space, whether it’s gaming peripherals or gaming on mobile devices or handheld devices, and medical simulation surgery. So, again, these are all very large markets, all essentially benefiting from the migration of touchscreens to each of these areas and wherever you have touchscreen you have an opportunity for an engaging experience with emerging haptic technology.

These are the touchscreen deployments in the different markets. With that mobile as you can see is the blue category and the largest but the green also includes many other markets as well. So the growth in touchscreen is phenomenal and we are experiencing right now and we have a significant opportunity wherever there is a touchscreen is a need for emerging haptic technology.
