syfy alien style gel/liquid controller Answered
i wonder how one could build a controller like the aliens use in district 9 and other movies/games.
You know the kind im talking about? The one where you put your hands inside of a gel like substance and manipulate the controls. Now maybe were a long way from the actual thing but i would like to make or see made something similar. like maybe a clearish, strong bag that could hold some kind of thick gel. then using displacement of your hands some how be able to "press" buttons.
like move index finger up, displacement of gel causes a button/sensor above to be triggered.
all while being inside of a clear glowing stylish case... is this possible with todays tech? i think so, but has anyone an idea exactly how to do it? community project maybe??
