The Bar of Soap prototype is one interesting device that functions according to the way you hold it. Should you pick it up and hold it like a camera, it will function like one. Hold it like a cellphone and it will function otherwise. The many iterations include a TV remote and an MP3 player among others – although in theory there is a limit to how many ways you can hold different gadgets that differentiate one from another. The unit consists of a plastic block, a touchscreen, an integrated accelerometer, 72 touch sensors and Bluetooth connectivity. Function-wise, it doesn’t amount up to much at this point in time as it is still coming to terms in the grasp classification concept. I wonder what happens to the Bar of Soap for those who’re about to beat the crap out of another person with it.
