Haptic Technology

The roots of word Haptic, can be traced from the Greek: haptikos, which means "pertaining to the sense of touch".
Haptic Technology also called as  kinesthetic (communication) technology recreates the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, or motions to the user.  Haptic devices usually incorporate tactile sensors that measure forces exerted by the user on the interface. The stimulation created by Haptics can be used in making of virtual things in a computer simulation, to control such virtual things and to enhance the remote control of machines and devices. The term "haptic" is usually associated with active touch to communicate or recognize objects.

 By the creation of  haptic virtual objects, Haptic technology has made it possible to investigate how the human sense of touch works.
