Touchscreens implanted with software controlled motors react to user interactions by the integrated motor’s act of spinning and moving which both capable of raising up or sinking down. A weight attached to shaft of motor create numerous vibration frequencies returning feedback to the user providing ability to feel various shapes at different lengths creating textures ranging from hair to wood or even water bringing entirely new degrees of immersion to stylus enabled technology.
