The smartphone cases are being used to give an attractive outlook. People choose different covers depending upon their preferences. A new and unique case has been invented by the makers. The uniqueness of the case is that it resembles human skin.
A new phone case launched similar to human skin
A team from Paris Telecom Tech led by Mark Teyssier has made a prototype. A phone case made with the artificial skin. We can pinch it, drag it and rub it. It gives a same feeling as a human skin. And it is very realistic as well.
The group has named the technology as Skin-on interface. This project has been made possible with the assistance of different research groups. Like researchers from Sorbonne university and CNRS. They claimed that people are getting annoyed with artificial cold covers. And they wanted to make a more realistic version of it.
There are two prototypes of this version. One is the simpler version and the other one is realistic version. It corresponds like a skin function as well. It corresponds according to our emotions and actions. For instance, a weak grip on the cover implies that a person needs phone’s attention. A firm grip on the cover implies that the user is in not a good mood.
This response is made possible by a wave of elastic copper wire. That is attached between an epidermis and hypodermis of silicon layer. It was shaped to look like human skin. The pressure which we exert on that cover alters the electric charge of the system. And it gives an impression back to us.
This is surely considered as an innovation. And it has the capability for further modification. As, Mark Teyssier also made a statement. That next step will be to make this artificial skin even more realistic. Let’s wait and see, how much it can bring a change in our life.
