The sensors register the location and force of up to 16 different points. Caption: The Sensel Morph looks similar to Wacom’s art tablets and Apple’s Magic Trackpad, but its capabilities are more versatile due to its sensor technology. It’s a tablet-sized touchpad, but the key feature is the ability to place custom overlays on it .

 

 

  • The magnetic connectors in these overlays tell the device how to process the input, and they’re making an open source API so developers can create their own.
  • An anonymous reader writes: Wired reports on the ‘Sensel Morph’ input device, which launched on Kickstarter yesterday and blew past its funding goal almost immediately.
  • The touchpad has 20,000 individual sensors, with pressure sensitivity ranging from 5g to 5kg.
