The Internet giant Amazon develops the touch screen smartphone with the unusual interface using the three-dimensional display and technology of tracking eyes of the user. Images formed by the display have to soar over a display surface due to effect of the hologram. HTC and LG already made attempts to put on the market smartphones with the three-dimensional display, but they didn’t enjoy wide popularity because of need of creation of specific photos and video movies. The LG and Samsung companies in the latest smartphones also realized technology of tracking eyes of the user. It allows delivering to video on a pause in case the owner of the smartphone doesn’t look at the screen at present.
For many years scientists of the whole world wants to find a method, which will give the chance to robots to perceive. The robot with the improved ability to feel has more opportunities for identification of objects, moves with bigger care and carries out more tasks as a whole. The latest step to achievement of this purpose was taken by researchers from Institute of technology of Georgia, developed new type touch a material, which is rather sensitive to compete about sensitivity of human fingers and can present to robots tactile sense, which reminds our own. The raised tactile material uses about 8 thousand piezoelectric effect transistors, each of which contains about 1500 nanowires, which diameter between 500 and 600 nanometers. Unlike the majority of touch screens, which measure change in resistance or capacity to find where your finger, these transistors feel change in their own polarity with a pressure. It is connected with nanowires from zinc oxide, which connect to electrodes a thin layer of gold that at the same time gives them piezoelectric and semiconductor properties. Within nearly three years the research group chemically raised hundreds massifs with sizes of 92 x 92 transistors, which are located vertically to create “taxels”, which make separate electronic signals at a touch.
The touch screens are rather convenient invention of the person. But, unfortunately, their form is rather static: it is only flat screen, though touch. But, it is quite possible, that now everything will change. Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology of Dary Dend and Rob Hemsli created the revolutionary flexible display, which they designated as the elastic display. Feature of the flexible display is that it is capable to change a form then without effort to come back to an initial condition. Screen surface so elastic, that the user can extend it, press and squeeze. The principle of work consists in the following. There is a 3D projector from above the display, which role consists in tracking of manipulations, which are made by the person.
In World Mobile Congress which was at February 25 in Bareslona, Asus announced an innovative Device Asus Fonepad. This is 7 inch tablet with 3G voice and all features of smartphone. Asus Fonepad equipped Intel® Atom™ Z2420 processor with Android 4.1, this fact gives wide viewing and clarity to HD display. The combination of 3G mobile with the telephony support, brings the perfect result of a tablet and phone in one device. Continuing the collaboration of Intel with Asus by producing the Z2420 processor, the company gives to users the power, flexibility, and range of performance, by one word- innovative device – Asus Fonepad.

DrawBraille is a touch screen cell phone. Basically phone uses Braille alphabet, executed embossing on the surface of the phone that is used as a function of input and output.
Alan Donnelly, a product designer from Dublin, designed a new device, the Tablet PC Lifebook. To create the new tablet will be used quite actual technologies. With Lifebook you can control display without having to touch by hands. The computer has a special built-in cameras that track the movement of pupils of the eyes and the movement of the hands ofthe user
