• Textures- When you run your finger over something with texture like a wood table or a porcelain pot, you are feeling the microscopic pattern tugging on your skin. The TPad can recreate these patterns with detail finer than the pixels on your screen.
  • Shapes- Imagine pushing a cart over a hill. When you go up the hill, the cart resists you. When you go down the other side, it pulls you forward. By playing a similar pattern of resistance forces on the finger, the TPad gives the illusion of your finger going over a small bump. This can be expanded to display the shape of an icon or a topographic map. 
  • Dynamic Actions- Your phone is full of little dynamic actions like using momentum when you scroll, and springiness when you get to the end of a list. These are force-based effects, exactly what the TPad was designed for.
