Is that a Force Touch trackpad? No, it's an exposed view of the a7R II's sensor-shift stabilization hardware. Sony's marketing team named this the 5-axis SteadyShot. Fancy.
The central tray of the stabilizer holds the image sensor, and is home to three electromagnets, each a component of a voice coil, an electromechanical device used for incredibly fine positioning.
These coils live in the magnetic fields of their permanent magnet buddies—which means slight variations in power to the three coils generates forces in a variety of directions. Enough variety to adjust the sensor on five distinct axes. Not a small feat for a full-frame camera.
