Proposed Group: Haptic Interaction on the Web Community Group

The Haptic Interaction on the Web Community Group has been proposed by Markku Hakkinen:

Haptic feedback can offer significant benefits in terms of accessibility and usability of touch-based interfaces. Many mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets, incorporate built in vibration feedback. The W3C Vibration API [1] will allow Web application developers to utilize vibration effects via Javascript and some have previously proposed the addition of haptic properties to CSS [2] [3].

As new haptic technologies are expected to emerge in the near term, now is the time to bring interested parties from the research, user, and vendor communities together to examine and discuss standardization, accessibility, authoring, and user experience.




You are invited to support the creation of this group. Once the group has a total of five supporters, W3C launch the group and people can join to begin work.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
