Haptics is technology to apply tactile feedback to user's sense of touch
to emulate natural feel as feedback to an action
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haptic_technology). With touch UI, the
simplest use of haptics is to provide sensory feedback with vibra when
clicking a link or pressing a button. Technologies are available to
simulate more realistic feel of physical keys or buttons.

On a mobile touch device, the user experience can be significantly
improved by using haptic feedback. Haptic feedback is commonly
implemented to predefined HTML components like <button>, but the
challenge for a web developer is that there is no way to apply haptics
to custom javascript components. Implementing feedback through a simple
javascript api is challenging as the feedback needs to be instantaneous
with substantially less than 100ms delay.

For a web developer, CSS is the most straightforward way to implement custom
javascript components with tactile feedback. For this we need to add support
for simple CSS haptic properties.
