FlatFrog future-proofs touch screen with gesture recognition
FlatFrog Laboratories AB has upgraded its in-glass touch screens with gesture recognition and support for curved screens, which it is demonstrating at the Computex 2014 in Taipei.
The Lund-based company first introduced the FlatFrog Touch in January. It was featured with zero-air gap technology, which minimises the distance between the display and touch module, resulting in thinner and lighter designs while eliminating all parallax issues when touching even at wide angles (see FlatFrog outs touch screen with zero air-gap tech).
The improvements on the latest touch screen release future-proofs the product, according to FlatFrog CEO Dhwani Vyas.
The in-glass touch technology detects touches by transmitting light inside the glass cover lens independent of its shape. Touches can therefore be detected on curved and bent cover lenses with perfect optical clarity. Curved screens help reduce reflections that impact brightness and colour, enhancing readability.
Meanwhile, the integrated gesture recognition allows users to interact dynamically with the display, either in close proximity or at a distance. Just as touch was a leap forward in user interaction, the combination of touch and gestures is believed to be the next step in the evolution of touch screens. The gesture functionality is integrated behind the touch module, enabling true flush, edge-to-edge designs with minimum mechanical design changes to the end product.

The zero-air gap touch screens support displays ranging from 20 inch to 65 inch, and are available in different versions featuring 2 touches up to over 40 simultaneous touches. Other features include unlimited glove support, palm rejection, built-in multi-finger pressure detection, Windows 8.1 certification, and support for stylus with 1.5mm tip.
