Neonod to show off Multi-Sensing zForce at MWC
Sweden's Neonode, known for its N2 phone and maker of mobile optical touch technology, will unveil a new Multi-Sensing feature for its own zForce touch tech at the Mobile World Congress show next week. The company promises a demonstration and a more augmented and profound user experience compared to modern multi-touch systems out there. The tech can be sold to hardware builders for their smartphones, tablets, in-car, and in-flight systems.
Multi-Sensing promises to identify any input object and determine its size, along with the pressure, depth, speed, and proximity to the sensing surface. It can tell apart a pen, brush, bare or gloved finger, or a hand from one another at very high speeds. The light technology allows for zero lag and is potentially much more intuitive.
Neonode hasn't named customers for Multi-Sensing or how soon it could reach devices.
