A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11972055B2) describes an electronic device with a unique vibration function. The device includes a processor that analyzes audio signals from an application program and a vibration module with two vibrators positioned on the left and right sides of the device. When the audio analysis module detects a specific audio frequency and loudness threshold, it triggers vibration signals to the corresponding vibrator, enhancing the user experience based on the audio being played.

Furthermore, the patent details a vibration driving method for electronic devices, particularly notebook computers, where the vibration intensity is correlated with the audio signal's loudness. The method involves analyzing left and right channel signals, determining their loudness levels, and outputting vibration signals accordingly. Additionally, the system can detect the presence of an external device, such as a mouse, and adjust the vibration signals to a third vibrator in the external device based on its location relative to the main device. This innovative technology aims to provide users with a more immersive audio experience through synchronized vibrations based on audio characteristics and external device interactions.
