The idea of responsive surfaces that communicate with users fuels the project called .fluid by Hannes Jung.
The piece is a concept study that aims to utilize the input from its spectator's touch, which is reflected in the movement of the non-newtonian fluid component. It is part of Köln International School of Design' two week project titled 'Talk to me – Form follows mood.' With its interactive nature, as the fluid changes from 3D to solid, the interface excites with possibility.
The creators invite you to "Imagine surfaces start to communicate with you. Your mobile gets goose skin when your lover texts you." .fluid by Hannes Jung perhaps spearheads a future that will incorporate more tactile facets to technology such as cell phones, gaming and computers.
