Tactonic Technologies, LLC was formed in October 2010 to develop and commercialize a new pressure imaging technology. Tactonic has invented a new method for high resolution pressure imaging, called Mechanically Interpolating Pressure Sensing (MIPS). Their core IP is about reducing the amount of material required to build a large sensor array, without sacrificing resolution. The final result is a high resolution pressure mapping using a low resolution sensor array.

Haptic feedback for touch screen devices
More and more consumer electronics devices feature a touch screen, which is already considered a must have for new devices. The next big topic will be haptic feedback solutions outperforming the poor vibration-based feedback that is the standard today. Adding haptic and sound feedback to touch screens using electro active polymers (EAPs) will be a featured topic at TCF LIVE Europe 2013 .
