Touchscreen lets you feel textures

A new touchscreen prototype from Tokyo’s University of Electro-Communications is able to transfer tactile information to anyone using the screen.

A layer of gel positioned behind the impressive screen is able to mould itself into different textures that the user’s fingertips can then feel.

I can imagine this screen being used for a range of purposes, particularly enhancing the user’s experience during games. However, I imagine it could also be useful for those who have problems with their sight or children, who are known to learn using all five of their senses.
