Haptic feedback (supporting the touch modality) is often taken for granted in real life but it is still not common when interacting with computers.

If you grasp an object by using a haptic device that is available today you can feel the qualities of the material of a graphical object, like softness, texture, weight, or viscosity. Magnetism and pulling forces can also be represented and felt physically. Haptic feedback thus makes it possible to feel graphical objects as if they were real physical objects and that makes them easier to manipulate.
