On Immersion

It is a MF Rule Breakers pick:

Immersion is a recent addition to the Rule Breakers family, and it does behind-the-scenes development in many of tomorrow's most exciting products. The company is a leader in "haptics" and develops technologies that allow people to feel their surroundings better while operating mechanical objects. Think about a video game controller that can physically simulate a heartbeat in your hand or a violent car crash. In the medical field, Immersion's technology allows doctors to refine their surgical skills in a risk-free environment. This intriguing pick is at the forefront of its industry -- where, no doubt, many other companies will seek its skills in the near future. Just ask Logitech (Nasdaq: LOGI), Microsoft, or Sony -- these companies have already done business with the firm.
