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.
