We keep talking about "taptic" feedback like it's something new and never heard of before.
Yet, I'm finding a real hard time finding anything regarding taptic feedback as a real thing. it sounds again, similar to the "retina" moniker. It's a name Apple is inventing to apply to something that is already fairly common.
Doing research on the term Taptic doesn't report back very much. Just a bunch of articles on the Apple Watch.
What I can determine is that "taptic engine" that apple is using is just Haptic feedback.
Maybe i'm missing something, but what exactly is the "taptic engine" other than a haptic feedback engine, which is not exactly new or unique to Apple.
Oh I think it's definitely a Apple marketing term. What I gathered is that unlike other haptic alerts currently on watches - taptic feedback can be of varying strength and length. Right now smartwatches pretty much use a same-level strength of feedback regardless of alert. The # of pulses or length can be different.
