Microsoft Research has revealed a technology that allows for any surface to be turned into a ‘touchscreen,’ including the human body. Referred to as the OmniTouch, the gadget was presented during the UIST 2012 symposium in Santa Barbara, USA. The OmniTouch combines a laser-based pico projector and a depth-sensing camera.

Hrvoje Benko of the Natural Interaction Research group at Microsoft said the team ‘wanted to capitalize on the tremendous surface area the real world provides.’ The device would essentially turn tables, notebooks, palms and walls into a touch screen surface.

Watch the demo video below to see how the OmniTouch works.
