According to the official site, PowerCursor is a software toolkit in Flash for designing interfaces you can touch.
Tactile sensations like stickiness, roughness, pressure, volume or mass can be experienced in a graphical user interface without resorting to special force feedback devices. PowerCursor uses a technique called ‘optically simulated haptic feedback’ to evoke the tactile experience.
The software engine consists of a set of force field objects that can be added to any Flash project: Holes, Hills, Slopes, Roughs, Walls, Whirls, and more. PowerCursor enables interaction designers to add a sense of feel to their Flash interfaces without difficult programming.
Test the interface in the home page, and feel all features.
Obviously the application does not move your real cursor, but a movieclip that replaces the mouse.
You can understand it as soon as you click right mouse button or have the fake mouse trapped and see the real one appearing off the Flash movie.
But the feeling of touching holes, hills and so on is quite accurate.
Any idea for a game? I think this could revolution mouse avoider games… I am testing it soon and show you the results.
