In the era of people moving farther away from each other, but somehow distances filled up by social networking and video chats.
Still, people complain in the long distance relationship:-
"I wish I should be there"
"I wish you could be here"
"This distance is killing me"
"I wish I could hold your hand."
Today Skype had introduced Touch Beta version. You need to purchase two touch-sensitive laptop screen guards available on Amazon here.
How it Works?
During a Skype video chat, just place your hand or fingers on the laptop screen covered with special screen guards. This will record the touch sensation and convert it into digital format to be transmitted over P2P networks. It reproduces the same touch sensation to be felt by the person on the other side, like an actual touch. Whoa!!!
The version is now open for the feedback and based on your responses it will also motivate us to release an AI projector version. In that version, 4D projection of people would be available on the both sides and yeah with the touch dimension, exciting!!! Isn't it?
So what you are waiting for, try this beta version now!!!
Your brickbats and bouquets are welcome:)
