Interesting touch technology: PhotoelasticTouch

Hideki Koike talked at the Symposium on Interaction with Smart Artifacts in Tokyo. One of the examples he showed is the PhotoelasticTouch technology. The idea is to use a transparent gel and the effect of photoelasticity to detect interaction on a surface, see [1] for details. [2] give a brief overview (the picture below is taken from this publication).
There is a nice youtube videp the shows the concept very well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJaEg0xB98E
