SINGAPORE -- June 5, 2013

Immersion Corporation (Nasdaq:IMMR), the leading developer and licensor of
touch feedback technology, today announced that the company will be
demonstrating its latest innovations in haptics technology for mobile and
automotive applications during CommunicAsia 2013, June 18 – 21 at Marina Bay
Sands, Singapore.

Immersion will be showing two innovative mobile UI technologies:

  *Tactile Presence opens up a tactile channel between two devices that allow
    users to actually feel one another’s presence. Spontaneous play,
    interactive gaming, and emotional communications are all enabled as users
    feel the remote actions of another user on their device and communicate
    emotion through tactile effects.
  *The Integrated Themes Module creates a holistic UI experience by injecting
    specialized tactile effects into the lock screen, home screen,
    transitions, button confirmation, notification tray and alerts. The module
    comes with a series of pre-designed reference themes, but OEMs can easily
    customize with their own assets to create a unique and branded experience.

The company’s automotive haptics technology gives digital controls an
authentic, mechanical feel and confirming response that cuts glance time.
Haptic technology can create a more intuitive automotive user interface that
increases user confidence. Automotive demonstrations will be on display at
CommunicAsia highlighting how haptics can enhance touch pad and touch screen
interfaces.

“Our haptics technology is evolving the way people interact with the digital
world,” said Dan Cho, Vice President of Asia. “We are pleased to connect with
and demonstrate Immersion’s proprietary technology to CommunicAsia’s diverse
industry professionals from around the world.”
