In-glass touch tech integrates with gesture recognition

FlatFrog announced its latest offerings within user interfaces and touch screens that it is demonstrating at Computex Taipei and at SID display week in San Diego.

FlatFrog has integrated its 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 gesture functionality is integrated behind the touch module, enabling true flush, edge-to-edge designs with minimum mechanical design changes to the customer product.

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 optical clarity. Curved screens help reduce reflections that impact brightness and colour, and enables better readability. FlatFrog believes the use of curved screens will be increasing prevalent in PC, monitor, and TV applications—all target markets for FlatFrog Touch.

 FlatFrog's in-glass touch technology

The company now offers a range of zero air gap (ZG) touch screens for displays from 20in to 65in. The products are available in different versions from two touches up to over 40 simultaneous touches. They all offer perfect optical clarity in an ultra-thin, flush edge-to-edge design. (See related story here: FlatFrog outs touch screen with zero air-gap tech.)

Optional features include:

  • Unlimited glove support
  • Palm rejection
  • Built-in multi-finger pressure detection
  • Windows 8.1 certification
  • Support for stylus with 1.5mm tip

A range of high-volume consumer PC products can already be enabled with FlatFrog Touch including tablets, PCs, and monitors. The ZG design is perfect for high-resolution displays in computers and monitors as well as for large interactive flat panel displays used for education, conferencing, gaming and digital signage applications.
