Disney Research is developing a touchscreen that can simulate real surfaces. They use a small voltage to vary the friction on the surface of the screen. Matched with visual queues this will trick you into feeling different surfaces.

Bumps and ridges on a flat screen. Stone, wood, glass, water... Maybe our touchscreen keypads will feel like real keys on a keyboard.

Disney isn't the first to work on this either. The tech has been in development for a while by Senseg.

Made me laugh! Bur seriously, this tech is driven by the porn industry. Back in the 90's I was approached to develop an electro-polymer muscle device that could be used as sensor on one side and call it an expression model on the other. I made little test pieces of the "plastic muscles" which were driven electrically to contract/flex/etc. The object of the project was to allow people to have virtual but semi-physical sex across the internet (with all the sensations). It's funny they ran out of money which was unfortunate, because it was an interesting idea that reduced disease transmission while still allowing people a lot of latitude.

Sounds like the Mojowiijo Wiibrator. Really, no joke. Him and hers sex toys that use the Nintendo wii for remote stimulation. Been around for a while.

I can't wait to see how this technology evolves into the oculus rift.

So how much money does the porn industry make with tech and games like this? I don't think Disney is making this tech for the porn industry.

Sure they might want some cool toys, but driving the tech development? Absurd.

Well let's see... when I worked for the largest porn ISP/portal in Canada in 1998, second largest in North America, my boss was doing a very nice business in the area of $15-18 million a month. Seems like a bit of loose change to me ;-)

Maybe you don't remember the history of the internet. Once upon a time there was arpa which was specifically military transitioning into education and large corporations. This was followed by an intermediary stage, post arpa and pre-internet where development was driven by newsgroups in the late 70's and early 80's and assignable URL's were being standardized, although there wasn't much around to find unless you were in the newsgroups first. What drove development of the internet were two things, hackers and porn, alt.2600 (hackers) and of course the alt.binaries (porn) subgroups.

I've been on the internet since 1978 in all of its forms and sex sells, even looking at the porn ISP I was working for where I developed their security and the industry was a little on the downswing due to decentralized competition.

That's fine. I certainly got a lot of stolen software and porn from newsgroups back in the day. However, to call porn the driving force of new consumer tech, today, is a large over statement. Consumer software and hardware is at least hundreds of billions of dollars worth. Not even to mention commercial applications. What's Microsoft worth?

There is little software or hardware developed for the porn industry(when compared to all other applications). Sure, you could say a lot of web traffic is adult content, but as I said, I doubt porn is the driving force behind Disney's development.

You mentioned Microsoft... Do you seriously think Bill Gates, who allegedly squeezed daddy for a $150k so he could flip the Berkley OS to IBM for 2 million, would have ended up with the tart he's married to if he didn't have mega-bucks? I mean seriously, boy wants hot chick, boy does anything to get hot chick because he wants that porn experience 24/7/365. I mean c'mon, he's cunning, I'll give him that but anything else, pah.

I used to laugh at those windows TV adverts, you know the "1 billion computers run on software written by Bill Gates." The victors write the history or I should say, rewrite and mold the presented history to their narcissistic liking LOL.

Porn and hackers ;-) Yehaw!

Do you know how we can tell this thing isn't that realistic without even trying it?

Watch when he pokes his finger at the cactus spines. If it was realistic, you'd pull your finger back from the pain, but he keeps rubbing his finger on the spines like it feels cool or something.

Still, it's an interesting technology, even if not that realistic.
