Smartphones, laptops and tablets with touchscreen, we are all familiar with them. But ever thought that paper could also be converted into a touchscreen?

Fujitsu has come up with a new technology invention which can detect objects touched by your finger in the real world, effectively turning any surface — a piece of paper, for example — into a touchscreen, DigInfo reports.

“This system doesn’t use any special hardware; it consists of just a device like an ordinary webcam, plus a commercial projector. Its capabilities are achieved by image processing technology,” explains Taichi Murase, a researcher at Fujitsu’s Media Service System Lab.

The best thing is that it not only works on flat surfaces but also one curved or uneven surfaces.
