Toshiba Patents Pressure Sensitive Vibration Motor
Oct 12, 2005, 5:13 PM by (staff)
Toshiba has applied for a US patent on a phone that can adjust how much it vibrates. The invention requires a pressure sensor, placed between the two halves of a slider / clamshell / spinner phone which would determine how hard the two parts are being pushed together. If the two halves are being pushed together quite hard, the phone vibrates less, assuming the handset must be in a tight pocket. As the pressure decreases from the phone being stored in looser pockets or bags, the vibration increases in strength. Toshiba already has patented this in Japan, however no phones have been announced with variable vibration as of yet.
