By utilising Immersion’s TouchSense technology, the iFeel MouseMan reacts with gentle vibrations as you move over web links, dialogue boxes and pull-down menus, making tasks easier, more intuitive and compelling. Immersion have a list of iFeel-supporting games here ; it’s not a long list.

Vibrations can be disabled or minimized if iveel become distracting. Immersion’s TouchSense is supported by quite a lot of games, but only for other force feedback controllers – various wheels and joysticks from Logitech, Microsoft, ThrustMaster and others.

Review: Logitech iFeel mouses

And that’s about it. To avoid the problem of people having to catch their mouse before it makes it to a main road, Logitech’s iFeel mouses just vibrate.

Me, I’ll just stick with a mouse that doesn’t think it’s sixty million times better. Two buttons, plus a configurable scroll wheel and thumb button. Marketing gibberish aside, I was interested to see what use a buzzing mouse could be.


People have thought of all sorts of things they can do with vibrating electronic devices. Maybe they’ve made some other pointing device that really does have proper force feedback, but this ain’t it.

Essentially, you can get feedback whenever the mouse moves onto a clickable thing on the screen – a window, an icon, things on the Taskbar – and you can also get feedback when you’re performing tasks like sizing a window or moving a scroll bar. Well, unless you’re left-handed and it’s the MouseMan, in which case you can swing it around on its cable and threaten the gift-giver with it until they give you something better. The vibrations are also fully customisable.

We’re going beyond that with a mouse that can provide you feedback with tactile vibrations. It’s basically just a little partial-rotation motor, with a spindle that can only turn a few degrees. The motor and vibrator turn off when the cursor is in a neutral spot.
