I have doubts about the usefulness of vibrator feedback. It can't help
you find a button or tell you whether you pressed the right one. All
it does is tell you that you pressed a button at all. That might be a
little better than no feedback at all but it can't replace much of the
visual or audible feedback. To make this more useful, interaction with
the touchscreen would need to include more sliding motions and less
tapping because with a sliding motion you can give constant vibration
