Stoobalou writes “In layman’s terms, Microsoft’s patent is for a special type of touch-screen display which includes a ‘shape-memory’ layer at its base. When activated by a special frequency of ultraviolet light, individual blocks — not-coincidentally the same size as a pixel on the display part — can be raised or lowered, lending the displayed image physical texture.”
