What if your iPhone or iPad touchscreen could recognize objects you put on them? Well, this is not too far from becoming a reality as some French engineers are currently working on it.

This technology works using printed tags that are applied to objects. These tags are detected by the multitouch screen that can recognize and differentiate them, depending on the tag. Watch this video to get a better understanding of how it works…
