Claim of US Patent No. 10,338,798

1. A system comprising:a processor; and
a memory on which instructions executable by the processor are stored to cause the processor to:
receive an indication that an object has been flicked by a user gesture and that the object has reached an end point that causes the object to bounce;
cause a haptic effect to be output when the object has reached the end point, wherein the haptic effect decreases in magnitude as the bounced object comes to rest; and
cause a second haptic effect to be output to confirm that the bounced object has come to rest.
