The life of modern man is associated with the interface is so tight,that most did not even notices it. Old fashioned knife switches, touch screens … yah,even a doorbells all this is the interface, without which modern man will experience some inconvenience. The engineers and designers have a entertainment – constant improvement of interfaces to bring the add understandable for any type, to increase their responsiveness, efficiency. Among these “improvers” were also officers of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who call themselves Tangible Media Group. They came up the tactile interface that can change shape and react to touch.
The main objective of the project was the desire to make the most of visual perception in the contact interface with the person. Materiable (so was called innovative interface) is a matrix of blocks, reacting to external influences, working with the help of simulating various physical processes of computer programs. For example the interface may switch in the mode of the water itself or behave as a rigid substance. Depending on the current state a interface detects pressure in different ways. Units,in addition to the are able to react in response to the pressure exerted by them. To try out for yourself this interaction is considered that this method of transmitting information more instructive than the usual, eye contact. In the plans of developers is creature monitor on based Materiable.
