One of the first thing a Smartphone reviewer will do after looking a phone up and down is to push the buttons to see if they have a cheap feeling or sound.

“The tactile feeling of pushing a button done right can make a product go from average to luxury, Uneo imagines a without buttons. Imagine simply pressing on the metal frame of a smartphone equals pressing a button.

Pressure sensor’s aren’t new, but we haven’t seen many companies pushing to replace Smartphone buttons with them. The single point pressure sensors that we took a look at can be printed into a wide range of materials from fabric to plastic.  What we are looking at is a Micro-Deformable Piezoresistive Sensor, which is developed for force sensing applications. The sensor is able to detect a light finger swipe or forces of up to 300psi.”/By Nicole Mobile Geeks
