Tactile touch screen / Design of technological device

Tactile touch screen
Tactile touch screen

Touch screen has been known for its convenience and flexibility when operating complex digital products.

However, limited by the virtual buttons, user only depends on visual feedback when they are using touch screen. Without physical positioning and tactile feedback, it is relatively easy to make mistake, especially to people who were visually impaired.

By combining the advantages of flexible screen and touch screen, this concept enables the screen surface to bump up or stay flat along with operation contents. Therefore, user can operate their device more precisely following the guidance of physical buttons on virtual touch screen.
