This phone cover might give some people the creeps. It's made from artificial skin!
The idea is to give the user some life-like sensations. The phone case can be tickled and pinched just like human flesh.
The artificial skin is made from silicone and sensors that give it that real-life look and feel.
No word yet if and when it will go on sale.
Why skin on mobile devices? It question the relation we have with our devices, and is also good opportunity to improve emotional communication and enable expressive interaction with user interfaces. #uist2019 #hci #opensource #diy More on https://t.co/LviSQuwoQQ pic.twitter.com/poS6VoadEG— Marc Teyssier (@marcteyssier) October 18, 2019
