Concept Nokia phone with substrate-filled display

Touch screen cell phones are all the rage these days, but unfortunately for many, one of the major drawback of such a display is this - there is no tactile feedback whatsoever to let you know that you have managed to make a selection on the screen itself. Of course, haptic feedback does change the game quite a bit, but not by much. After all, having my handset vibrate with each selection I make isn't exactly an indication of me making the right choice. The Nokia concept aims to bring things to the next level with a small pump that fills a substrate right under the display, offering one's fingers something to feel and press. Don't think this concept will ever make it to production anytime soon though - maybe in 5 years' time?

    The concept is great, I would like to use it. I think we are a bit bored about the hard plastic and metal objects and interfaces in our life. We are more open to organic, natural responses, like thisone. It reminds me a bit on the artifical muslces.
