    Ok, so it has one use that I won't use.

    It's going to have iSmell technology. This for example will allow war games to emit the smell of cordite and smoke. Farm videos are not going to be so popular.

    Ya' know...



    If there is an API for this texture thing and haptic feedback -- it could be a breakthrough for gaming apps...

And they would be right to do that considering they are shopping their technology around. Personally though I sort of wonder as to the usefulness of this technology in a product like the iPad. It's neat, sure, but ultimately pretty gimmicky.



    I thought the vibrate on key press was pointless at first, but I found that I really like to have that turned on. I think it just feels more natural to have the phone do SOMETHING when I type.



    It is easy to say, "I don't see the point," when you have never experienced it. Many computing features that initially seemed pointless are now common place and standard. For instance, at one point sound wasn't that big of a deal and a decent sound card was seen as something for gamers only.

    I don't think it'll be sensitive enough for that.

    According to Senseg they do. It's already been demoed on an Android tablet that-will-not-be-named, with API's and libraries "available for Android, iOS, Linux and Windows".
