Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia, has recently applied for a patent based on a new idea it has for multi-touch pressing on a touchscreen device. According to the patent application, Nokia is exploring a 3D multi-touch interface for the mobile devices, that reacts not only to your finger movements, but also to the strength with which your finger is pressing the screen.
The 3D multi-touch interface is enabled via a combination of capacitive touch screen and a number of force sensors, that are able to measure the force you press the screen with and also the direction of that force as you move a finger on a touchscreen display.
We are really waiting for this feature on Nokia smartphones, aren’t you?
