Neonode today announced a new touchscreen technology it calls Multi-Sensing. According to Neonode, Multi-Sensing can identify any object and its characteristics (size, pressure, depth, speed, proximity) in relation to the touch surface. It does this using light, which Neonode says has zero latency and can sense input devices such as a finger, pen, or brush at high speeds. It is built into Neonode's existing 2D zForce multitouch technology. The company envisions Multi-Sensing being used in devices such as smartphones and tablets. Neonode didn't say when it expects the technology to reach shipping devices.

"using light"?

I find it strange that if it is as simple as they make it sound, I would imagine we would already see this in play. My concern would be if this would be effected by outside lighting conditions.
I imagine this is something like a holographic touch screen thing where it pops off the phone. If so... D:
LED's can be used to detect light, including the detection of their own light reflected back into the LED. It would take a specialized display driver IC to read the reverse current flow, and you could probably scan an OLED display matrix it like you...
