This paper presents an intelligent adaptive systcm for the integration of haptic output in graphical user interfaces. The system observes the user's actions, extracts meaningful features, and generates a user and application specific model. When the model is sufficiently delailled, it is used to predict the widget which is most likely 10 be used next by the user. Upon entering this widget, two magnets in a specialized mouse are activated to stop the movement, so target acquisition becomes
