Computing Innovation Kyciel McDaniel

My computer innovation does not really have. Name but it is transparent gel pad that has touchscreen abilities. What is significant about this innovation is that while it is completely flexible it also can be used as a touch screen while being flexed or stretched. The pad is made out of a gel that has electrodes in it that can sense the disruption in the grid caused. Y human touch and can also do so when being stretched and bent. It can tell the difference between the two types of disruptions "This is the first time anyone has made a transparent, touch-sensitive electronic device that can detect touch while the device is being bent or stretched,"(John Madden)

The technology opens doors for devised to be sewn into clothing and even sk

There are many benefits to having a flexible touch respondent material that is also transparent. A huge benefit to having this technology would be the ability to make technology more convenient and a part of everyday life and make it more part of the daily routine for all by making it easily a part of people's clothes or a part of the person themselves. It's also not expensive to manufacture which is goof for the economy since the item is cost effective "The researchers note that the materials used to make their devices cost about $1 per 10.75 square feet (1 square meter) and are cheap to manufacture."(Charles Q)

There aren't many harmful effects that could sprout from this innovation but the few I'm thinking of, One harmful effect of this would be that phone companies without access to this technology would be blown out of the water by companies with access because the possibilities for this technology would be almost limitless with the right amount of imagination. So in short heavy competition would have an affect on the economy and how things are bought and sold and from who. "The researchers note that the materials used to make their devices cost about $1 per 10.75 square feet (1 square meter) and are cheap to manufacture."(Charles Q) while he competition will be fierce the product itself is not too expensive so the other thing to watch out for it lack of resources.
