Impress is a flexible display created by german designer silke hilsing that enables touch interactivity with feedback. The display uses arduino and processing to run sensors sandwiched in between pieces of foam. When the user touches down on the foam, they trigger the sensors which in turn communicate with an overhead projector. The motivation behind the project was to remove the technical stiffness from touch screens, bring the technology closer to the user by making it more human. Unlike a regular touch screen, impress also measures the intensity of the pressure. The user can pres slightly for a small reaction or press
down firmly to trigger more intense reactions.
