    so .. it is a microphone for vibrations..
    it cant see anything...or where it is being touched.

    hears one sound.. then it plays back a different sound...


    right?

    Basically, but the idea is that is programmable, even to the level of "gestures"

    Think of it like voice recognition for vibrations.

    Seems like now a few microphones could be used in concert to make any surface a touchscreen. Time of arrival to the mikes could be used to compute the exact location touched - voila - a full touchscreen of any size, without a full touchscreen matrix supporting all of the possibly-touched points.
