Pressure sensitive touchscreen displays a very real possibility

Haven’t you heard? The future is an exciting one, with quantum tunneling being applied to make pressure sensitive touchscreen displays a very real possibility sometime in the near future, thanks to the boffins at UK-based Peratech. This new methodology involves a 75-micrometer quantum tunneling composite which allows display makers to add to their screens without adding too much cost or going through too much trouble in the process. This new pressure-sensing layer won’t consume a single iota of power when it isn’t depressed, and is sensitive enough that a mere two micrometers of movement is good to register a touch.
