Senseg haptic technology rumoured to feature in new Apple iPad

Back in December 2011, InAVate reported on a new haptic technology developed by Senseg that had made its way into Time magazine’s top 50 innovations list. Now, hours before Apple is expected to announce the latest iteration of the iPad, rumours abound on both sides of the Atlantic that the Senseg haptic system is to be employed in the new device.

Whether the rumours are true or not, the technology is pretty cool and as we’ve previously noted it has great potential for display manufacturers as they have no need to re-engineer their existing display technologies to accommodate the haptic element.

If you’re interested in how the technology works, there’s a detailed piece on the Guardian website in addition to the above video from CNET.
