Use the force
One of the first apps will be a hug or hand-holding dating type one, you watch. Rule #1 for new technology is akin to rule 34; for any new technology, the first application will be porn - it happened with the printing press, the photograph, the internet...
And this technology seems similar to that in Apple's new mouse... Cupertino, start your lawyer's engines.
|If this becomes a new iphone at some point in future...
Someone will come up with a app called Phalic Phone
"Or if you're just a bored and lonley housewise looking to turn your mobile into a tactile virtual cock for discreate pleasure - There's an App for that"
Squeeze for fart noise and lift and tip for beer app.

Surely they should look to turn console controllers into something like this so you can calibrate buttons to any part of the controller that is most comfortable for you rather than what the manufacturer decides is the best fit for most people.

Sony's universal remote
I saw a prototype universal remote at Sony Japan once which had a screen which somehow (through ultrasonic magic, apparently) made the on-screen buttons feel like you'd actually clicked them. Hard to describe - the buttons felt as if they "gave", even though there weren't any buttons. It was quite an astounding sensation.
Never seen it on sale anywhere. They should put this on the iPhone; it would be teh win - especially if you could feel for the buttons *before* you clicked on them.
"even reacts when gently squeezed."
Yeh, so do I <g>
I wonder How many patents they have or filed for this AnY iDeA ?
Some told me Nokia was working on something like that.
