iPhone Haptic Keyboard

So, you love your iPhone but wished the virtual keyboard on its touchscreen would be a little less "virtual"?

Well, it might be easier than you think:

According to a project from the Computing Science Department of the University of Glasgow, the iPhone built-in vibrotactile actuator can be used to provide tactile feedback on the "keys" and buttons on the screen.

Different buttons can have different force feedback envelopes, meaning you'll be able to tell the difference between a keyboard button, a tab, or any other pressable item.

What is Apple waiting for?
