SENSEL MORPHE - A NEW GENERATION OF MULTITOUCH INTERACTION

Sensel Morph adds greater sensitivity and dimension for interacting with devices. Leaning away from the mouse and keyboard combo, the Sensel ‘Morph’ offers a new generation of multi touch interaction.

It is powered by pressure grid technology in the form of an input device that allows user to interact with computers and programs in a whole new way. With its dynamic range of force sensitivity – 20,000 individual sensors, the ‘Morph’ scans not just fingers but any object from a paintbrush to a drumstick. It works with many applications and it’s also hackable for those more technically inclined. This super sensitive touchpad can be connected to computer through a USB or to tablet using a bluetooth connection. 

The use of overlays, all of which are automatically detected, are optional additions made of thin, flexible layer that can be placed over the device to provide a visual map and tactile feedback for each mode’s unique functionality. Partnering with frog design, the partnership refined and tested core use cases for the ‘Morph’. The result is a device the size of regular tablet, ideal for two handed interactions. Moreover the ‘Morph’ is lined with magnets which enables for simple expansion, such as creating a 96 key piano.

The project has been launched recently on kickstarter, aiming to start production in February 2016.
