Amazing new touchscreen tech will soon allow tablets to touch you back

Almost all of us has experienced haptic technology – you know, the slight vibration you feel when you touch your smartphone or tablet on the screen. But a new kind of touchscreen tech will soon allow you to feel the surfaces of the pictures and video that you see on your tablet. Dubbed Senseg, the technology uses electrostatic tech to simulate texture on the screen – the ridges of a mountain for example. Dave Rice from Senseg says that the technology has a number of applications, and turns touchscreens into feel-screens. There’s a whole lot of applications for this kind of technology, from gaming to apps for the blind (tablets for blind people? Why not?). Good stuff. You can view the entire demo of the new technology on CNET’s video page, linked here.
