Haptic technology is a great feature to incorporate into your product designs to give users the satisfying experience of tactile feedback.

Today's modern smartphones and capacitive touchscreens benefit from haptics, which improve both the realism and the precision of our interactions. Beyond purely audio or visual cues, haptic feedback can also increase the usability of our devices—from virtual reality to surgical robotics to touchscreens.

In our latest Hardware Guide post on haptic technology, we cover the pros/cons and practical application for different vibration motors for haptic feedback including:

  • ERM (cylindrical) vibration motors
  • Coin vibration motors
  • Linear resonant actuator (LRA) vibration motors
