Abstract: front page image
(EN)Embodiments of the present invention use haptic feedback (110) to deliver status information to users in environments and situations where sight and/or sound is too overt from a privacy perspective. In one embodiment, localized haptic sensations can be delivered to a user through a tactile element (120) that is positioned on a region of a housing (102) of the electronic device that is engaged by a user.
(FR)Les modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent l'utilisation de la rétroaction haptique (110) pour communiquer des informations d'état aux utilisateurs dans des environnements et des situations où la communication visuelle et/ou sonore s'avère indiscrète. Dans un mode de réalisation, un élément tactile (120) disposé quelque part dans un boîtier (102) du dispositif électronique dont se sert l'utilisateur permet de communiquer à ce dernier des sensations haptiques.
