• The tech Huawei is commonly called Force Touch -- at least, that's what Apple, its first commercial inventor, calls it. Using sensors and motors underneath a smartphone's screen, it can detect how hard you're pressing, adding a third dimension to touch interfaces.
  • During a press conference, Huawei also showed a sneaky use of the tech: it can weigh stuff. The Chinese company weighed an orange.
  • Unfortunately, Huawei hasn't revealed how precise the measurements are or what the maximum weight is -- but in a few years, your drug dealer or fishmonger could be making measurements on a smartphone or tablet.
