Touch tech is gaining an extra dimension, if Neonode has its way, with the company demonstrating its brand new Multi-Sensing system for 3D phone, tablet and other gadget manipulation at MWC 2012.
Announced last week, the new finger-tracking kit uses light rather than physical touch sensors: in Neonode’s demo, you can reach through the frame and control on-screen graphics. However, Neonode envisages special cutaway sections showing up on tablets, phones and laptops, allowing us to more precisely interact with the device UI.
Neonode’s existing system sits on top of a display and can track two-point multitouch as well as pressure; ereaders from Sony and others already use it. The company’s argument is that pressure sensing is far more intuitive than pinch-zoom, since you can use it to zoom in and out of on-screen graphics and grip the phone one-handed. It also supports more accurate stylus input than capacitive screens, without demanding a traditional active digitizer such as in Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1.
