Digital Talking Paper Created By Swedish Scientists

Researchers from Mid Sweden University have constructed an interactive paper billboard that emits recorded sound in response to a user's touch. The prototype display uses conductive inks, which are sensitive to pressure, and printed speakers.

The researcher's display model shows its possible use for marketing holiday destinations.
