I searched the board and couldn't find anything on this, but I read the cafe's wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Caf%C3%A9)

and I saw this:

"On May 2, 2011, Swedish site Loading.se reported that the console's final name will be "Nintendo Feel." According to the article, the controller's touchscreen (and possibly the entire surface of the controller) will use haptic technology to allow players to feel in-game textures. The site also claims that the technology behind the Wii Vitality Sensor will become a key feature of Feel.[30]"

"Haptic technology, or haptics, is a tactile feedback technology that takes advantage of a user's sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, and/or motions to the user."

Interesting..

Apart from rumble, I can see no way this could work. So when Samus touches the Phazon in a Metroid Prime game, will I feel the pain?

if they use it on the handles of the controller it could be used almost exactly like rumble is.

I highly doubt this is legit, but I did hear a rumor about the touchscreen possibly using a technology that allows you to feel texture on the screen. I can't recall the name of the technology, but it uses varying electrical frequencies to simulate the feeling of touching something smooth, something soft, something bumpy, something rough, etc. Interesting stuff.

I thought haptic was where, something gets knocked in-game, and YOU get moved? You know, the sort of sci-fi immersion we're likely never going to get physically, so we'll have to emulate it with mental stimulation.

In fact, your quote supports my original post:
"Haptic technology, or haptics, is a tactile feedback technology that takes advantage of a user's sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, and/or motions to the user."

Forces, vibrations and motions. The thing I was referring to was simply textural feeling, not actual motion.

The Android Phone employs Haptic feedback for their on-screen buttons. When you press a key on the touch-screen, the phone rumbles.
