Ever reach for your vibrating smartphone in your pocket, only to find it didn’t buzz at all? You’re not alone. It’s called “phantom vibration syndrome” — yes, it’s a real psychological phenomenon — and studies in the past few years have found, when surveying college undergraduates, that the majority experience a “phantom vibration” once every two weeks. Georgia Tech School of Public Policy professor Robert Rosenberger explains the phenomenon in a recent video.
