This HTC U11 video about squeezing stuff is kind of gross

Hey, want to see some people squeeze some stuff?

HTC has already confirmed that it will take the wraps off its new flagship, the U 11, on May 16. Ahead of its official launch, the Taiwanese manufacturer has released a new teaser trailer to highlight one of the device’s unique features.

In the video, some hands squeeze some objects, including several pieces of fruit, a water pistol, and a burger bun. We see burger buns being squeezed in advertizing messages often but HTC has done something different here: it’s showing a the bun being squeezed from an upright position and sans burger. The way nobody should squeeze a bun, ever.

The reason for the squeezing is that you will be able to interact with the HTC U 11 just by pressing the sides of the unit. Evan Blass (@evleaks) tweeted a leaked video of this in action and I think it could be interesting. It would suit the way we naturally hold our smartphones, so it’s logical — we just need to wait and see if it’s useful.

As for the official teaser, it’s the squeezing of the ketchup and mustard bottles that makes me feel queasy — where is all that sauce going? It reminds me of that Dumb and Dumber scene.
