Today's touchscreens are flat, solid surfaces that do not reproduce real-world object interaction properties such as stiffness or deformation. The EU-funded FORCE-UI project will revolutionise touch input. It aims to radically transform touchscreen-based interaction by increasing its expressivity. The project will install together three force modalities, force input and resistive and kinetic force feedback, in a display device. It will combine advanced hardware prototyping with experimental computer science and psychophysical methodologies to establish a new model for human-computer interaction, the Force Responsive Deformable User Interfaces (FRUI). FORCE-UI represents a revolution in touch input with considerable implications for the use of interactive systems.
