Neonode Outs Multi-Sensing Touch Technology
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.
