Futuristic touch screen technology is taking the try-before-you-buy mentality to the next level by allowing users to feel physical objects before they buy, Cynthia Hipwell, chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas, participated in research that could allow people to actually feel touch, buttons, slides and knobs. on the screen.
According to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, the innovation uses multiple physics, which includes processes or systems associated with multiple physical fields occurring at the same time, which change depending on what the user is looking for and environmental conditions.
It also relies on the nano-texture and surface energy of a touch screen, allowing the technology to suggest materials related to an element such as the softness of a sofa or the stitching of a jacket.
“We are looking at electrohydration effects, changes in fingertip properties, material properties and device surface geometry, contact mechanics, fluid motion, everything that happens at the interface to understand how the device can be designed to be more reliable and perform higher,” Hepwell explained.
Although the technology is still in its infancy, Hepwell expects, consumers will start to see early elements implemented in touch screen devices over the next few years, with some early products already in development.
As Hepwell said, “I think the first elements of it will certainly be within the next five years, and after that, it will just be a question of how advanced the technology is, how real and widespread it is.”
