What if you stopped touching for a day?
You enter a business meeting and exchange introductions/ goodbyes without a handshake. This probably ends in awkward eye contact and no sales deal. No kiss, hug, or hand hold on date night… You’re in big trouble. Leave someone hanging on a high-5? Rude. Touch is necessary in social situations and equally important in our technology. It is more complex than you think… If you’ve given it thought at all. Our new White Paper explains the biology of touch and how technology improves with a deeper understanding of it.
- The first sense we develop in the womb.
- The sense that enables stable emotional development in infants.
- Vital in creating muscle memory for hundreds of motions (typing, shaking hands, swinging a tennis racket, free throwing a basketball…).
- Faster at communicating to the brain than sight.
What Phorm does to make touch screens more touchable:
- Provide physical reference points to where keys are.
- Provides the best of both worlds; usability of a touchscreen, eyes-free typing with a physical keyboard when needed.
- Eyes-free typing = more immersive writing.
Get touching! It’s what your body was made to do.
