Haptix sensor makes any surface multitouch

We’ve seen several interesting concepts for new input devices recently, from split keyboards to midair typing apps.

Haptix is a compact 3D motion sensor that turns any flat area into a multitouch surface. It could help do away with the traditional keyboard as well as the mouse.

The concept has already raised more than $130,000 on Kickstarter with the promise of 3D multitouch for $70 or less.

When Haptix is placed over a surface (such as a messy kitchen counter while cooking), or even a laptop, users can tap, swipe, or pinch it to control a cursor, page scroll, or image zoom on a screen. It can also be used for things like capturing real-world brushstrokes for a drawing program.
