This unsettling case that looks and feels like human skin wants you to poke and pinch your smartphone

Marc Teyssier

Researcher Marc Teyssier is exploring a tech platform that mimics the look and texture of human skin to control devices that we often touch to control, like smartphones and laptops. The project and devices, called Skin-on Interfaces, can sense touch and gestures, like pokes and pinches, and translate that signal into something our tech can understand. The idea is to bring more natural and human-like interaction between us and the devices we handle every day.The skin case is only a research project at this stage, so those looking to add the unique case to their collection are out of luck.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

It's almost Halloween, so this phone case that's seemingly made of skin is just in time to incite genuine horror.

Unfortunately for serial-killer-costume hopefuls, this case isn't a product. It is, however, a serious research project concept called Skin-On Interfaces that's exploring different ways to interact with the technology that we often touch to control, like smartphones and laptops. 

Skin-On Interfaces are sensitive skin-like input methods than can be added to existing devices to increase their capabilities, researcher Marc Teyssier writes on the project's website.

When we interact with others, we use skin as interfaces. However the objects of mediated communication — such as the smartphone — still has a cold interface that doesn't allow natural interaction and input. In this project, I wanted to make available the perfect human interface that is the skin for existing devices, Teyssier said about the project's conception.
