Immersion Powers Tactile Effects In Samsung GALAXY Gear

Immersion Corporation (Nasdaq:IMMR), the leading developer and licensor of touch feedback technology, today announced the Samsung GALAXY Gear, a wearable companion device, incorporates Immersion’s TouchSense® technology as part the user interface, providing tactile notifications and alerts to communicate information to its users.

“Tactile effects open a powerful communication channel between wearable devices and their users. With Immersion TouchSense software, OEMs can create distinctive, meaningful notifications that alert users to important information without disrupting their primary activities,” explains Dennis Sheehan, Immersion’s Sr. Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “We are pleased to work closely with Samsung’s innovative product teams to bring this rich capability to their first wearable device. The private, non-visual nature of tactile feedback creates a more natural user interface for wearable devices and we are excited by the new opportunities for Immersion in this innovative new market.”

Samsung utilized Immersion’s TouchSense® technology to make optimized vibration patterns of notification and operation. As a result, GALAXY Gear is equipped with optimized tactile effects and notifications that use Immersion's low-power, quiet and high fidelity technology.

In a wearable device, tactile feedback is an ideal means for alerting and notifying users in a completely discreet and non-visual manner. Information about unread messages, appointments and location based notifications can be communicated via wearable technology because the tactile effects both inform users without requiring full attention and do so without socially disruptive audio alerts or visual distraction.
