Disney Develops Tactile Screen with Virtual 3D Texture

3d_tactile_screenDisney has developed a new touch screen that gives users the sensation of touching a 3 dimensional object. Take a look at this video.

Pretty cool, huh?

Ministry Applications?

While 3D tactile screens are no doubt years away from production, could they be useful for your organization some day?  How about…

  • A mobile app that helps the visually impaired by generating braille letters in real time.
  • Educational applications where kids could touch plants, animals and other object.

What other uses could 3D tactile screens have?
