Technology turns paper in to touchscreen developed by FUJITSU

The technology has been grown so rapidly that every device or gadget we use is made of touchscreen including mobile, ipad, computer and many more.But what about paper???

Fujitsu has developed a technology that detects objects your finger is touching in the real world, effectively turning any surface — a piece of paper, for example — into a touchscreen, DigInfo reports.

Taichi Murase, a researcher at Fujitsu's Media Service System Lab explains "This system doesn't use any special hardware; it consists of just a device like an ordinary webcam, plus a commercial projector. Its capabilities are achieved by image processing technology".

In the above video we see how one can manipulate data on a piece of paper: by using finger gestures, you can copy an image or a text excerpt and store it into memory. Besides flat surfaces, the technology also works on curved or uneven ones, so one can easily manipulate data from a book.

Though the technology is still at the "demonstration level," researchers at Fujitsu plan to develop a commercial version of the system by fiscal 2014.
