Touchscreen detetc different type of input thanks to Qeexo's listening technology.

Fingers have many “modes” - they do not just poke, as contemporary touchscreen interaction would suggest, but also flick, rub, knock, grasp, and can perform many other actions.

Qeexo wants to bring new dimensions of touch to interactive surfaces, and make better use of the natural richness of our hands.

A new capacitive touchscreen technology that recognizes users through their "capacitive fingerprint"

Disney Research labs are developing a new technology designed to recognize users thanks to their "capacitive fingerprint". This new technology measures the impedance of a user to the environment by sweeping across a range of AC frequencies.
Different people have different bone densities and muscle mass, they wear different clothes and footwear, and so on. This, in turn, yields different impedance profiles, which allows attribute touch events and multitouch gestures to a particular user.

Lexus LF-CC Concept shows the future of touchscreen interiors

Lexus is showing what it believes to be the future of touchscreen integration in car interiors.

Its LF-CC Concept include multiple touchscreen displays that replace every single gauge and button you can find on current cars.

Tesla's Model S does something similar but with only one 17" display in the center console.

Unfortunately, the software interface both on the Tesla and now on this Lexus concept look way too complicated and an unintuitive in our opinion.

Freescale's new industrial touchscreen tech even works in the rain

Freescale is announcing a new industrial touch sensing technology that'll even sense your swipes and prods through a film of water. Xtrinsic 3.0 is designed to be used in industrial, medical and in-car systems, with pre-built user interfaces ready to be added to any device its jammed inside. In addition to being able to work through water, it can withstand noise, detect electrical interference and reduce false touches. It's being demonstrated at the company's technology forum in India from today, presumably ready to be licensed by passing equipment manufacturers in short order.

Samsung calls Apple patents into question with LaunchTile and DiamondTouch table


Samsung started off its case today by going straight at the heart of Apple's utility patents, showing off two software systems with similar functionality that pre-date iOS altogether. Adam Bogue, president of Circle 12, showed off images and video of a projection-based touchscreen surface called the DiamondTouch Table. Developed in 2001 at the Mitsubishi Electronic Research Laboratory (MERL), the DiamondTouch featured two particularly-relevant pieces of software: Fractal Zoom, an application that allowed users to manipulate images using multiple fingers, and Tablecloth.
The latter allows users to pull an image down in a window, revealing a duplicate image right above it; letting go causes the image to snap back to its original position, providing a visual effect that appeared quite similar to Apple's bounce-back effect. The DiamondTouch was easily accessible in the MERL lobby for anyone to access, leaving open the possibility that anyone in Cupertino could have seen the device — in fact, Bogue revealed that he'd even given a demonstration to Apple itself in 2003.
