CES 2013: The tablet that turns itself lumpy

10 January 2013 Last updated at 10:50 GMT

When you can't feel individual keys on a touchscreen device it can be hard to type at speed.

That is why Tactus, a company based in California, has developed technology which can turn a typical flat tablet screen into a real keyboard with bumpy buttons.

The keyboard rises from the tablet when needed, before disappearing when the typing is done.

Micah Yairi from Tactus explained how it works.
