Sound as Touch Video

Inspiring human-centered sound design

Part of our ongoing content series to highlight Microsoft’s thought leadership in design, this video is a collaboration with one of the world’s leading sound designers for technology, Matthew Bennett. Pings, notifications, and haptic sounds for devices are inspired by the very human idea that sound is essentially the same as touch, leading to gentler, more human-centered results in Microsoft’s products.
