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

This is an online e-commerce website where customers can purchase mid to high-range fitness accessories, apparel and nutritional supplements. Our incredible team developed this e-commerce website to showcase different categories of apparel, accessories and supplements to promote ease-of-access to our customers. We offer quality products designed for results oriented and effective workout. Even when you're not working out, we have other products and accessories to keep you looking your best and staying motivated.

Lastly, I started "Workout or Walkout" after I said similar words to someone in a gym one day when I got tired of people spending more time on their phones than they actually spend working out in the gym. I love and encourage phones in the gym for many reasons but if I need to use an equipment and it's not available simply because you choose to use it as a couch to text or chat, then we have a tiny bit of a problem my friend. Workout, Eat healthy; it's a lifetime thing! #workoutorwalkout #stayhealthymyfriends
