Have you ever thought that one fine day if you will have to interact with everything through ‘Touch’,no matter whether things are Touch sensitive or not ? Yes, that is very much possible now – Atleast for most of the things. A Futuristic interface through which people can interact with many things in life just by a single touch has been launched by a company recently.

An interactive hardware company called Displax has begun marketing its one of the most appreciated product which turns all non-metallic surfaces into a touch screen. Company has developed a paper-thin flexible film ‘Skin” which can be placed on any of the non-metallic surface opaque, flat or curve and uses it to display any interactive content you like.

Skin is completely transparent and works on surfaces that are also transparent; you can place Skin on a glass surface and interact with content displayed under the glass.

This unique hardware operates via a grid of nanowires embedded Skin’s polymer film. Each time a user makes contact with the surface, either by blowing on it or directly touching it, “a small electrical disturbance is detected allowing the micro-processor controller to pinpoint the movement or direction of the air flow,” according to Displax.

Skin is readily available from 30” to 116” in size through which interactivity goes through non metallic materials upto 17mm of thickness.

We can imagine millions of cool use cases for such a technology — business presentations, medicine, museums, schools, and gaming to start. The possibilities are as endless as our collective and ever-growing want and need to interact with digital content through multi-touch interfaces.
