Tactile TrackPoint -- Touch Feedback

Tactile TrackPoint -- Touch Feedback

The Tactile TrackPoint has an actuator beneath the TrackPoint device which can stimulate the user's finger. It actually bumps up against your finger to give you tactile feedback which indicates the meaning of the cursor location.

With Tactile Trackpoint, you can "feel" icons, title bars, menu items, and window borders. These responses allow more accurate movement and selection by complementing the visual feedback with a sense of touch.
