Disney Research is on a roll. It first showed off its face cloning methods and now it has unveiled a new technology that modifies a user's tactile perception of the physical world.
With "Revel", it gives almost any surface or object a new texture, and provides dynamic sensations on touchscreens as well as furniture, walls and human skin.
