Interfaces between humans and technology are becoming increasingly intuitive. User interfaces are becoming released from physical devices to become part of the environment. Input methods such as gesture, speech, and multi-touch recognition simplify human-machine communication. On the other hand, touch is conquering the virtual world. The textures of virtual surfaces can be felt through haptic feedback providing information about their contour, pressure or heat. In addition to recording and reproducing text, images and sound, touch will also be able to be reproduced in the future.
