Disney Tech Controls And Talks To Everyday Objects With Touch
Touché makes anything imaginable responsive to various levels of tactile feedback.
How you control touchscreen devices like smartphones could very soon be how you control everyday objects, even liquids.
The screen on a touchscreen device turns ‘on' and ‘off' with capacitive sensing technology; touchscreens are coated with a conductor that carries an electrical signal, when touched, the electrical signal changes and the screen responds. Capacitive sensing is binary- a touchscreen knows if it has been touched (and responds) or if it hasn't been touched (and doesn't respond), but a touchscreen doesn't know how it has been touched.
