It’s too perfect. I can’t belive it that it has so many cutting edge functions as the company says.
We have come across that cellulose based paper can produce a bending displacement in the presence of electric field. This smart cellulose is termed Electro-Active Paper (EAPap). It can produce a large bending displacement with low actuation voltage and low power consumption.
This new double-sided multi-touch mobile interaction model enables intuitive finger gestures for manipulating 3D objects and user interfaces on a 2D screen. Although multi-touch input enables scrolling and the zooming of a document, its manipulation is constrained to two dimensions over the horizontal or vertical planes of a mobile device’s 2D touch screen. By adding touch inputs from the device’s back side, the degree of freedom for manipulation can be extended to a pseudo three dimensions.
|Grabbing an object.||Dragging an object (x and y axes) by simultaneously moving fingers on both sides of the device.|
|Pushing up/down on an object by touching on the object from back/front side of the device.||Flipping an object by grabbing and sliding two fingers in opposite directions.|
|Stretching an object by grabbing it with two pairs of fingers and sliding those two in different directions.|
