Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology want to put your signature up in lights – tiny lights, that is.

Motion Converted To Electronic Signals For Tactile Imaging By Piezoelectric 'Taxel' Arrays
2013-04-25 21:27:07

Using bundles of vertical zinc oxide nanowires, researchers have fabricated arrays of piezotronic transistors capable of converting mechanical motion directly into electronic controlling signals. The arrays could help give robots a more adaptive sense of touch, provide better security in handwritten signatures and offer new ways for humans to interact with electronic devices.
