Impress- flexible display_ LookingOutwards4

Impress was created by Silke Hilsing and is a soft interactive display surface that response to touch. Hilsing uses the depression created in the surface when touched to add another layer of interaction than the usual “touch screen”. ┬áIn her video she demonstrates the Impress being used as an application for 3D modeling and to make music. The Impress is built by sandwiching force sensors between two pieces of foam and then covering them with an elastic piece of fabric. A projector and camera are mounted above the screen to enable the users interaction. I found this project interesting because its construction is feasible to recreate for future projects. It is a fun and unique interface that I believe will encourage users interaction due to its tactile property.
