Books can be so boring just sitting there and not responding to your touch or swipes. It would be so cool if you could tactually interact with them somehow. Well, Rebecca Zerovnik, Business Developer for Feelif, gives Shelly an opportunity to do just that with the many products the company is hoping to bring to the U.S. soon. Each device utilizes a Samsung phone or tablet, with a tactile overlay, to give a user the ability to learn more about pictures and text through haptics and sound. The company's apps provide access to games, books, object identification in pictures and more. While not available in the U.S. just yet, the products mentioned can be shipped from the EU. To learn more about the product range, visit the Feelif website
