Multitouch user interfaces are slowly finding their way into all kinds of devices, not just phones and tablets. Thanks to researchers at MIT and the Max Planck Institute who have developed a printable sensor that can be easily cut down to size with a regular old pair of scissors, any device or appliance you can think of could soon be enhanced with multitouch controls.
Many people are claiming that these new Meganews Magazines autonomous newstands could save the print industry. That’s maybe a bit optimistic, but at the least they’ll help reduce the mountains of wasted paper from unsold magazines since the over-sized vending machine only prints publications when they’re ordered, in just two minutes.
If you’re a card-carrying geek (aren’t we all?), you’ve probably toyed with the idea of publishing your own comic book at one point or another. However, most of us never get past the notebook-scribbling stage and our dreams of becoming the next Neil Gaiman remain sorely unrealised.

And the researchers at Harvard and MIT behind this printable inchworm, obviously fall into that latter category.
We live in the future, so chances are you’ve got all manner of gadgets flashing and beeping at you to remind you what’s happening on any given day. But your toast isn’t in on all that fun. And why shouldn’t it be? If you had something like the Image Toaster, it could be. And maybe someday you will.
