Immersion Signs Licensing Agreement with Stanley Incorporating Immersion's Haptics IP into Electronic Printer Equipment

Share:

Immersion Corp. (NASDAQ:IMMR), the leading developer and licensor of
touch feedback technology, today announced it signed a license agreement
with Stanley Electric Co., Ltd. (Stanley). With a head office in Tokyo,
Stanley is a leading global supplier of lighting products and electronic
components, including control panels for printers.

The adoption of haptics is widespread across markets, such as mobile,
automotive, wearables, gaming, and industrial. High-quality tactile
effects and feedback incorporated into the touch panels of printers,
scanners, and copiers creates a more intuitive interface. For example,
haptics applied to a flat-screen touch panel provides the sensation of
pushing physical buttons on a printer or feeling the clicks to adjust
brightness on a scanner.

"Our new license agreement reflects the depth and breadth of our
portfolio, and we are pleased that Stanley is licensing our technology,"
said Nobumitsu Shimada, Immersion's Sr. Director, Field Sales,
APAC. "Because of the rich and dynamic nature of touch, haptic
technology can enhance and revolutionize how users interact with their
systems and devices."
