How cool is this new tablet. The buttons appear from under the surface of the screen to make it easier to compose an email or text message.

Its due for release next year, and the company behind it are already developing more uses for the technology

Oh wow! At first I didn't get what you meant.

But after watching the video ... Shut up and take my money!

I think it would be nice, but I think it moves to slow for them. But I hope this tech does not get buried, there are so many things it could be used for. I do wonder how much pressure the buttons can take and how long it lasts. No point it if won't last longer then 3 years...unless you're an apple user and used to getting a new phone or pad every year.

Is this "vanishing liquid keyboard" supposed to be better than a touchscreen?

Its a layer over the touch screen, which sort of inflates to create raised buttons.

You mean it's a type of accessory in addition?

I suppose if so, they could just manufacture the tablets with these items included?

No its built into the tablet screen. The idea is to produce tablets and phones with this already built in. They used a new screen on an existing tablet to demonstrate the technology.

Not an accessory more of an adapation of touch screen tech, the other alternate idea is electrical fields which makes your finger feel a button which isn't there.

That's some straight up alien technology!


I wonder how long that's been lying around in a DARPA lab?

Great idea, as long as it doesn't spring a leak.

They should take it to the next level.
Make the entire screen tactile for video interface with another user of like tablet.

i.e. During a 'facetime' (or skype) session, one person places a hand, or object, on his screen and it rises up on the other person's screen. Virtual kiss.

That would take hotchatting to a whole new level...


I can think of several excellent applications for this type of tech. Neato-o! Im also liking this as I HATE my touchscreens... and they hate me.

Now imagine if you went back in time 15 years and showed this thing to your past self!

People would probably be freaked out by technology like that back in the late 90's.

"It's surfs the internet wirelessly, takes photos...oh and the screen transforms....yeah it's pretty standard stuff in 2013."

The bluetooth laser keyboard I have freaks people out, and that technology has been around for a few years.

Take a Galaxy S3,iPhone,HTC One X etc back 15 years and they wouldn't believe it was real and possible.The same with 64gb compact flash cards or 2 tb external HDDs small enough to hold in one hand.
This is a very clever idea,but can't see it having any real practical advantages over a touch screen tablet or PC which also doesn't have fiddly buttons.

We all know old people prefer buttons over touch screens. This is why they still make the Blackberry!


I can see folks in their 50's and up liking this technology. It has the look of the sleeker, touch screen phones AND it has nice big buttons for when your eyesight starts to go...

Not really sure I want to think of what the adult entertainment industry would like to use this tech for. But I bet they'd find all kind of uses for it.
