A group from MIT dives into the inner workings of Cillia in order to design touch responsive hairs a fraction of a millimeter in diameter.
What implications does this have for the way we define a touch screen, or touch sensors? Enjoy this fascinating read on how researchers have developed the artificial hair.CHI2016-Cilllia
