02/05/2010, The name PVI might not seem familiar to you, but it might just interest you if you know that PVI is the Kindle display manufacturer. According to PVI’s chairman Scott Liu, his company will be rolling out one of the first few full touchscreen and motion-capable e-paper displays later this year, and since the touch would be placed underneath the e-paper, this method eliminates the unintentional dimming of the display […]
02/01/2010, Samsung Mobile Display has announced that it will begin mass producing the world’s first touchscreen AMOLED panel in March. It’ll be a 3.3-inch WVGA (480 x 800) resolution AMOLED panel. Until now, touch screens were made by separately connecting the display and the touch panel, but now Samsung has placed a touch sensor over the mirror display. With the sensor’s thickness at just 0.001mm, it allows the screen to offer […]
01/27/2010, Haven’t you heard? The future is an exciting one, with quantum tunneling being applied to make pressure sensitive touchscreen displays a very real possibility sometime in the near future, thanks to the boffins at UK-based Peratech. This new methodology involves a 75-micrometer quantum tunneling composite which allows display makers to add to their screens without adding too much cost or going through too much trouble in the process. This new […]
12/03/2009, Canon could very well roll out DSLRs in the near future that comes with a touchscreen display, which might see the game change yet again just like how Live View displays gained traction among DSLR enthusiasts slowly but surely after its introduction, being an indispensable part of a DSLR today. What you see here is part of the US Patent Application No. 12/422,695, which was originally filed by Canon on […]
11/17/2009, Malata might not be a household name at the moment, but they’re surely going in the right direction if they continue to unleash devices such as the Malata R108T. It will come in a range of interesting colors including Ferrari Red, Piano Black, Coffee, Gold and Champagne, and it doesn’t hurt that it boasts a 10″ rotating touchscreen display as well, allowing you to turn it into an impromptu tablet. […]
11/10/2009, SK Telesys has rolled out its 3G-enabled handset known as W (also called SK-700), where it will come with an intuitive, emotional UI for those living in South Korea. You get a 3″ multitouch display, a 3-megapixel camera, DMB support, Bluetooth connectivity and a memory card slot. Available in black or white colors, we’re pretty sure that the W touchscreen phone will never make its way out of Korea during […]
10/20/2009, Avago Technologies is back with a brand new touch screen interface which could potentially improve and enhance the operation as well as navigation of smartphones, portable media players and a host of other devices in the future. This new technology is a mutual capacitance, multi-touch controller which is able to track up to a quartet of simultaneous touch points without experiencing ghost points that are normally available in the majority […]
10/12/2009, With the launch of Windows 7, HP has decided to upgrade the software suite that comes with the multi-touch tablet TouchSmart Tx2. That includes Netflix, Hulu, Twitter and some HP-made applications. The tablet uses a capacitive screen, a technology which is generally considered by users as “nicer to use”. On the hardware front, this Tx2 is very similar the previous model and starts at $800.
10/12/2009, In today’s barrage of announcements from HP, we found a big 42″ LCD touch display that supports a 1080p resolution and is built to be on 24/7. The monitor can work in horizontal or vertical position. Now it would be interesting to see a few installations in the real world.
08/31/2009, Following in HP’s footsteps, Medion has launched the Akoya X9613, a 24″ multi-touch capable PC. It was spotted by newgadgets.de during the Medion launch event. The computer runs Windows 7, which is a little more finger friendly but to be honest there was no real demonstration of why you would like to have this computer hung on your wall, especially for 1500 to 2000 Euros (I don’t even dare converting […]
06/26/2009, AUO paraded its 3″ touchscreen display at the recently concluded Display Taiwan 2009 event, and what made this presentation special was the fact that the display itself measured a mere 2.7mm thin. Now that makes it the world’s first wideview and thinnest 3″ touchscreen VGA resolution LTPS, so we’re wondering when will it trickle down to devices for the consumer.
06/07/2009, Touchscreen technology is here to say, and different companies have taken various approaches in pushing this technology to the masses. ELO TouchSystems will be rolling out a new touchscreen technology which is capable of delivering real-time, two-finger gesture recognition on an analog resistive touchscreen. This new technology was formed to fill the niche that cheap resistive panels which are easily scratched and more expensive, robust capacitive screens fail to do. […]
