The Tablet That Turns Itself Lumpy





California based company Tactus has developed a new technology which can turn a tablet screen into a real keyboard with bumpy buttons.

According to the company

“What if buttons could morph out of the surface of your device? Tactus Technology has developed a new tactile user interface for touchscreen devices that does exactly that. Tactus provides a new dimension to touchscreens by enabling real, physical buttons that rise up from the surface on demand, and then recede back into the screen, leaving a perfectly flat, transparent surface when gone.”

In the video from Xcellent10 on YouTube, the company demonstrates how it works.
