Immersion Corporation (Nasdaq:IMMR), a leading developer and licensor of touch feedback technology, has released the Haptic Muse effect preview app on Google Play as part of the company’s Haptic SDK developer tool kit.
The free animated effect preview app illustrates the Haptic SDK’s library of 124 pre-designed haptic effects in a gaming context and is designed to inspire creativity for game developers looking for ways to enhance their Android games with tactile effects.
The Haptic Muse app invites developers into a haptic museum with galleries built around common gaming use cases, like sports, transportation, combat and casinos. As developers browse through the museum, they can select items on display, and then watch, feel and hear them come to life.
The company says that the effect library significantly reduces integration time by allowing developers to select from a comprehensive list of effects designed to enhance a wide range of gaming environments.
Immersion also offers the Haptic Studio tool for custom effect design, sample code, quickstart guides and a technology forum via the developer web site: http://developer.immersion.com.
