+ - Unflattening Touch Screen Buttons->

Submitted by blee37
blee37 (1181835) writes "Researchers at Carnegie Mellon demonstrate "popping out" touch screen buttons to become physical buttons using pneumatics. The idea is to combine the dynamic reconfigurability of touch screen buttons with the tactile feedback of real buttons. The technology could be applied where tactile feedback is currently lacking, such as in car navigation systems, ATMs, or cell phones."
