The concept design uses electro-active elastomers which is able to recreate the surface texture of various types of materials in response to the change in voltage applied to it. This is especially useful in fields such as interior design where it will replace sample material books that may be bulky and an inconvenience to carry around.
This device will be able to access the material database stored in the cloud where you can search by product, material type, or material name.
