Say goodbye to ordinary phone covers—and hello to this.
It’s a bit unnerving to look at. It’s a cover that makes your phone ticklish. You can even pinch it, just like human skin.
Your phone can also display emojis that correspond to how you touch it, like a laughing emoji if you tickle it.
The artificial skin was created using silicone and sensors to give it that real-life look and feel.
The technology, called skin-on interfaces, is a project designed by researchers at The University of Bristol in England.
They partnered with Telecomm Paristech and Sorbonne University in Paris.
It is only a project at this stage and doesn’t appear to be up for sale.
