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.
