Thanks to this technology, smartphone manufacturers can place virtual buttons almost anywhere. Structurally, the system is a strip of 25 sensors that replace traditional physical buttons. In this case, the sensors are able to distinguish between different degrees of depression up to 5 kg. According to Sensel, the new sensors are able to determine how a person holds a smartphone and how it clicks in a certain way. At the exhibition, a prototype was shown, where the sensor determined the pressure for focusing the camera, shutter and series of shots. Also, the technology will allow you to control the smartphone with gloves. Most interestingly, any surface, including wood and skin, can become sensory. That is, the controls can be placed anywhere.So far, Sensel is preparing a development kit and software components that will allow the use of new sensors in any technology. However, the date of their release on the market has not yet been specified.
