One Minute Blog: What Could Google’s Acquisition of Redux Mean for Future?

Redux builds technology that uses vibrations to turn surfaces of phones or tablets into speakers or provide haptic feedback. Haptic as an adjective means "related to the sense of touch."

Simply put, this technology-
  • could potentially turn phone surface to speakers
  • could eliminate the need of having any buttons on the phone.

The technology uses signal processing algorithms to direct tactile sensations at specific touch points throughout a device's display. Actuators then deliver different effects to different fingers simultaneously, with the result being a "feeling of pressing a mechanical button or moving a slider control underneath your fingertips on the screen with button click effects coming directly from the display."

What this could mean for future is-
  1.  Future phones could be even more compact. No need for micro-speakers and releasing valuable internal space for extending battery or other components.
  2. Google gets the lead when in future instead of wifi sound will be used to transfer data. Yes, there’s already a buzz around such tech
  3. Potential for future phones being speakerless and button less and bringing new experience including making phones truly water-proof.
