Visualizing Touch

August 4, 2010
The Utah Science Center, The Leonardo, has quite a few interesting exhibitions for kids. One of them uses surface pressure mapping sensors and technology developed by SensorPod (that’s where the photo comes from). SensorPod’s site shows you all the applications they use these sensors for but I like the idea that they’ve taken something tactile such as pressure and exported it into a graphically appealing visual medium. Check out the video of the exhibit at the museum.

    That's awesome. I love science museums that actually have technology current than 1982.
