Mophie Pulse for iPod Touch Will Add Stereo Sound and Haptic Vibration

Mophie, who makes great accessories for iOS devices such as the Juice Pack Air, has a new product in the pipeline for the iPod Touch 4G - the Mophie Pulse. The Pulse is a video game/app enhancer that turns your iPod Touch into the “ultimate gaming device with pulse-pounding stereo sound and bone-shaking game feedback.” It’s all built into a textured gaming grip. The Pulse gets its magical powers from ViviTouch Technology that converts game audio into a variety of different effects. ViviTouch doesn’t require an API to generate vibrations but the games will be better optimized if the developers use it.

There currently is not a release date but a “coming soon” sign-up form on the product page if you want informed when the product launches. The Pulse looks like a great addition to Apple’s favorite gaming device and as long as the price point is good, Mophie will have another hit on their hands. If the iPod Touch version is a success, could an iPhone version be next?
