A touch screen that touches back… Way to go Microsoft

It’s probably not a totally new concept for a touch screen to touch you back (I remember Apple had a patent like that back in 2007… Not sure though). But this technology is really interesting…

It goes like this:
Plastic pixels that goes up and down on demand. It can happen by coating those plastic pixels by some special stuff that makes it pin or sink by UV light.

Of course, this will be mostly used for larger screens (So we won’t see it in mobiles… At least not anytime soon… That goes for this concept as well).

What made me really like this is TechRadar bringing up the possibility to bring Braille into such screens. *Clap* *Clap*


As a side joke, I hope that surface doesn’t BSOD and shoots those pixels to the user’s eye! xD
