Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Tuesday, 14 March 2023 is Electrovibration.

The history of electrovibration goes back to 1954. It was first discovered by accident and E. Mallinckrodt, A. L. Hughes and W. Sleator Jr. reported “... that dragging a dry finger over a conductive surface covered with a thin insulating layer and excited with a 110 V signal, created a characteristic rubbery feeling”. In their experiment, the finger and the metal surface create a capacitive setup. The attraction force created between the finger and the surface was too weak to perceive, but it generated a rubbery sensation when the finger was moving on the surface. This sensation was named "electrovibration" by the group. From around early 2010 Senseg and Disney Research are developing technology that could bring electrovibration to modern touchscreen devices.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:59 UTC on Tuesday, 14 March 2023.

For the full current version of the article, see Electrovibration on Wikipedia.
