ELI Conference - Haptic Force Feedback On Learning

Jeff VanDrimmelen, EDUCAUSE Connect, Mar 28, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is pretty neat - an interface device (like a mouse, only much more complex) that not only lets you control objects on the screen, but which responds with resistance as appropriate. It's the same basic technology as rumble-sticks but with more fine-tuned responses that merely on-off and intensity. Jeff VanDrimmelen says there's no reason not to have one now, as they're becoming mainstream. Well, I guess I'd wait for some applications to actually develop the interface. And $300 is a bit much for a mouse with an attitude.
