News: Multitouch Skin Transforms Any Surface Into a Touchscreen

Multitouch Skin Transforms Any Surface Into a Touchscreen

Coming soon! Popsci reports that a multitouch skin that can make any surface a touchscreen will be released this summer.

Portuguese company Displax will "market a multitouch capable, super-thin polymer "skin" that can be applied to any material -- flat, curved, opaque, transparent, you name it -- creating a digital muli-touch surface virtually anywhere, from a wristband to a desktop to a pane of clear glass."

Very cool. Displax says that the skin will be able to detect even the subtlest of touches - even blowing on it. A futuristic, sci-fi existence is creeping closer, becoming more and more of a reality.

Awesome. Now when they have transparent projected hologram monitors, I'll be set.

Oh man. That's insane...

I wanna attach one of those to a 62" Flatscreen and hook up my computer. That sounds fun, not so practical.

This will revolutionize porn...
