Haptix sensor makes any surface multitouch
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.
