Nintendo has been on a roll with submitting patents, and the company has recently submitted a patent for a touchscreen that features haptic feedback. Haptic feedback basically creates the illusion that what you feel on the touchscreen is something more traditionally tactile. While haptic feedback has been featured on other touchscreen devices, this will be the first time we've seen the technology on a Nintendo device.

The device appears to utilize left and right rumble motors in order to give more precise feedback to the user. The example shown in the patent diagram shows a volume slider that clicks more distinctly to the right as the user slides in that direction.

What do you think about this new patent? Could it be related to the NX? Let us know in the comments!
