Immersion outs Motiv haptic SDK for Android devs

Immersion has already introduced its Motiv haptic feedback platform for the Android OS earlier this year, but it's now making the promised SDK available for download. SDK 1.0 will let Android developers to bring tactile feedback into their products. It contains hundreds of haptic effects, code samples and other resources.

Haptic feedback can be used in apps other than games, though that is where they excel. The feeling of a gunshot or a kick or punch in a fighting game, hitting a curb or wall in a racing game, or any other feedback such as guitar strings in a music app or game can add to the experience, the company said.

To demonstrate what's possible, Immersion is also offering a Motiv effect preview app on the Android Market.

The Motiv SDK supports Android 2.1 and newer and will be forward compatible.
