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 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 the Sorbonne University in Paris.
It is only a project at this stage and doesn’t appear to be up for sale.
But if it were for sale, would you buy it?
