FlatFrog, a company that produces multi-touch screens for displays, has unveiled its latest advancements with touch screens during Computex in Taipei. FlatFrog has unveiled a curved and non-curved touch screen with integrated gesture recognition. The company also plans to showcase their displays during SID display week in San Diego.
“FlatFrog has integrated its unique in-glass touch technology with gesture recognition. Integrated gesture recognition allows users to interact dynamically with the display, either in close proximity or at a distance. Just as touch was a leap forward in user interaction, the combination of touch and gestures will be the next step in the evolution of touch screens,” the company stated in a press release.
FlatFrog touts the combination of touch and gestures into a single interface product as something that will generate powerful new user experiences, along with exciting app features. The company also believes that the use of curved screens will increase, and has unveiled a curved touch screen with integrated gesture recognition.
“FlatFrog’s in-glass touch technology detects touches by transmitting light inside the glass cover lens independent of its shape. Touches can therefore be detected on curved and bent cover lenses with perfect optical clarity. Curved screens help reduce reflections that impact brightness and color and enables better readability. FlatFrog believes the use of curved screens will be increasing prevalent in PC, monitor and TV applications,” the company adds.
FlatFrog’s inventory includes ultra-thin, flush edge-to-edge designed touch screens for displays ranging from 20-inches to 65-inches. Some of the optional features of these displays include palm rejection, built-in multi-finger pressure detection, Windows 8.1 certification, and support for a stylus with 1.5 mm tip. Combined with Windows 8.1, imagine the possibilities!Further reading: Windows 8.1
