Episode Description

This week on the Tech Cat Show we chat with David Birnbaum who is the Director, UX Design at Immersion Corporation, a company that has been into the field of sensory technology for over 25 years. David has been creating haptic experiences for over 10 years. Haptic technology brings the sense of touch to digital content, creating experiences that are engaging, impactful and ultimately, more real. David will take us through the science and art of bringing more senses to every experience through haptics. With haptics, you are able to feel the buttons on a mobile screen. Gamers feel the G-forces applied to a car around an S curve. And movie watchers feel the percussion of an explosion. Join us on the Tech Cat Show as David Birnbaum, Director of UX Design at Immersion Corporation takes us through the power of touch.
