VW has made a move to acquire licensing for a new technology called TouchSense from a U.S. company called Immersion. Foursprung reports that this technology makes it possible to make virtual buttons on touch screens sensible, thus providing tactile feedback from a 2-D display. TouchSense could virtually turn your entire center console into a flat-screen display that has the ability to simulate buttons and even provide the resistance of a normal button pushing in. VW-Audi has always been on the forefront of interior design, so we’re curious to find out when and where TouchSense technology will show up first. If we're not mistaken, at one of the higher-end aftermarket nav systems already has this capability, though we haven't gotten on our hands on it yet.
