Dear Steve, At last, a question that is 100% opinion and therefore has the possibility of being 100% wrong. Overall, Touch Guy thinks there was nothing new at SID that would be of practical use to the average Joe or Josephine. There were lots of new ways to make the same things. In the past two […]
Dear Mr. Curve-A-Lot. Needless to say, you have Touch Guy’s curiosity aroused as to what you would do with this curvy-bendy-multi-touch touch-screen. Also, he wants to make sure you need this to be transparent because that drives the touch sensing technology and ultimately the cost…..and do you need proximity sensing as well? In the antediluvian […]
I have made mention of how we propeller-heads love the challenges you crazy design engineers give us. But, as exotic requests go, you have thrown us a soft ball. In the old days of resistive and surface capacitive, we have made Cartesian touch sensors that were circular, triangular, spherical, and even a hexagon or two. So your […]
Hey Keith C., Two-timing touch on multiple displays is an old surface capacitive problem with a complicated solution. I am assuming you are using the same computer running a multi-display solution under windows. By now you know that multi-touch electronics send information to the multi-touch driver which converts it to the equivalent of multiple mice […]
Scott, you get one question and one bonus question all rolled into one Touch Guy answer. With more than 50,000 iPhone touch screens being replaced per month with cracks, broken touch screens have become a big business so we kinda like the breakage. But I guess a broken screen keeping you from your Facebook page […]
