What’s so special about Morph apart from the fact that it is fun to use computer peripheral? Morph is a small trackpad consisting of a series of silicone covers which can easily recreate any form be it a Qwerty keypad or a fancy drum pad. The Morph was the perfect example to prove that Sensel ’s pressure sensitive display technology works efficiently.
This recent week, Sensel was at CES in booth much larger than the previous year. The Morph booth was the major attention of all those. The real star was a series of unbranded tablets featuring the use of Morph. In a meeting with The TechCrunch the previous year, the company stated that Sensel was shopping which revolved around the cardinal technology for other’s uses.
Pressure Grid is the New Age Display Tech | How?
Pressure Grid is the evolved version of the traditional capacitive touch sensors, merging both positional touch and light touch into a solo-sensor. This grid is the most economical way to determine both; the position and pressure (ranging from 1kg to 5Kg) at a single shot. Another added advantage is its thinness which makes it perfect to be implemented in different types of displays. This gives us an idea about the pressure sensitive display in the upcoming mobile devices.
The company successfully demonstrated the use of Morph underwater, using wet hands. The company gave a hint to the entire world about the next level of mobile experience, underwater.
Further added features about Morph, is its super sensitive touch interface, which can identify objects beyond a mere finger. This means that Morph pressure sensitive display can respond even to a finger covered by a glove or can also respond to a regular paintbrush. The company stated that it has implemented fail-safe mechanism into the Morph software. That’ll remove any false-positives, which can otherwise create an issue for a device can respond to any object that comes in its contact.
The company further added saying that it has already begun working with industry partners; So as to implement their revolutionary technology into commercial devices. Apparently, the company also mentioned that, just like 3D touch; pressure sensitivity would require some customer training before it can successfully become a part of our day to day computing.
