In the future that I’m planning on living in, nobody will carry around laptops or cell phones anymore. Instead, electronics will be embedded in wearables: in wristbands, in watches, in rings, in clothing, and eventually, in things like electronic temporary tattoos that you apply directly to your skin. The more embedded the technology gets, the tricker interaction with it can be, since you’re no longer physically holding objects. At the University of Sussex, in England, researchers have developed a system called SkinHaptics that transmits ultrasound straight through your body to generate focused haptic feedback on the surface of your skin.
