The present invention relates to an interfacing
system for interfacing a plurality of elements to a surface
of interest. The elements thereby are suitable for locally
sensing a signal of the surface of interest or for locally
actuating the surface of interest. The interfacing system
comprises a plurality of element holders, each element
holder being configured for holding an element for interfacing
with the surface of interest and each element holder
being configured for providing a pressure exerted on
the element for interfacing the element with the surface
of interest, the pressure being based on a fluidic action
in the element holder. The interfacing system also comprises
an outer shell interconnecting the plurality of element
holders. At least two of the plurality of element holders
further are fluidically interconnected so as to link the
fluidic action in the at least two element holders thereby
linking the pressure exerted by the element holders on
the elements.
