Phone 'skin' that can 'feel the user's grasp'

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An artificial skin that wraps around a mobile phone can "feel the user's grasp", researchers have said.

The spongey-looking jacket, created using two layers of silicone, has the ability "to detect tickling, caressing, even twisting and pinching", they added.

Emojis can be created, based on how a handset is being held.

The idea is to echo natural human communication, of which touch is often an important part.

and then

Hmmm... let me get this straight.  This thing seems to have the potential to record given emotional states at specific times and keep a record of them?  What could go wrong with that?  Sounds like a wonderful idea, for Big Brother's plans ;)
