TouchBookHave you ever pressed on a URL on a printed page and expected something to happen? Although it sounds ridiculous, this technology is already available and it has just been adopted by NASA. According to Somatic Digital:

“The Touch User Interface (TUI) technology enables a reader to press the pictures and words on the regular printed ink and paper page and retrieve digital content from an appliance. This technology, in essence, turns the printed material into a remote control to digital content.”

The following link to the vendor’s site has videos of a 7 year old using a TouchBook.
