It’s time to head back to school, so you’ll want to be sure you’ve got the latest gear to start the school year off right. We’ve already rounded up the best Apple gear at 9to5Mac and you can always count on 9to5Google for the latest Android news and gear.

Apple’s introduction of multi-touch input on the original iPhone completely changed the way that we interact with our devices. Movements like pinch-to-zoom and now Force Touch have become engrained into the technology experience. The ability to recognize different levels of pressure and movements is being used to reimagine the way we manipulate software.
Sensel Morph is a new Kickstarter project that is providing a foundation for software-specific input devices that can be changed quickly and easily. This new device is centered around a keyboard sized slab that is layered with 20,000 sensors that work together to detect unique movements and pressure. Input is handled by different overlays that focus on a specific activity.

The new amiiqo is a small Android-connected disc that allows users to store and share their amiibo collections. Pre-loaded with 10 characters, the small device will essentially act in place of the actual figurine once its data has been transferred from the companion Android app. Nintendo isn’t going to be happy about this: expand full story
