Neonode Launches zForce Game Changing Technology -- Touch Enabling Any Surface
(Nasdaq: NEON), the optical-touch technology licensing company, today
officially launched zForce(TM)AIR(TM), a breakthrough and game-changing
technology which can touch enable any surface.
zForce(TM)AIR is a modular sensor bar that can be integrated into any device
or structure. It projects an infrared light field on the surface of the
display or desired touch area and gives accurate X and Y coordinates for
touch functionality. The result is great flexibility in Industrial Design,
Differentiated Leading Edge Functionality, and Ultra-Low Cost.
The applications for zForce(TM)AIR(TM) are limitless and can be applied to
Notebooks, All-In-One, Monitors, Keyboards, eReaders, Tablets, Printers,
Mobile Phones, Gaming Devices, White Goods, and Automotive (link to image 1
and image 2).
Advantages of zForce(TM)AIR(TM) over other optical and projective capacitive
-- Any Surface -- Touch functionality on any surface such as LCD's, OLED,
E-Paper, metal and plastic materials, glass, wood and even human skin
-- Functionality -- zForce(TM)AIR(TM) can be integrated into devices to
not only touch functionality but also allow for free space air gestures.
-- Scalability -- Optimized for high volume production allowing any module
maker to pre-produce the zForce(TM)AIR sensors as pre tested modules
allowing for infinite production volume scalability.
-- Cost -- Through reduced number of components, ease of production and
assembly, zForce(TM)AIR(TM) enables OEMs to deploy touch in a wide range
of devices where cost has been the main barrier for touch integration.
-- New Possibilities -- zForce(TM)AIR(TM) can be integrated into wearable
devices to use back of hand as a touch surface. Also, opportunities for
building "active" phone and tablet cases that enable a whole new way of
device interaction without touching the screen.
"We are very enthusiastic about this new technology that can touch enable
any surface. Already the OEM's who have seen our first samples are very
eager to work with Neonode on next generation of human to device
interaction. We believe this technology could be a game changer for OEM's
that need low cost touch and proximity solutions. zForce(TM)AIR(TM) is a
result of our continuous investment and commitment in R&D to keep our
technology leading edge and offer our customers something which
differentiates their devices," said Thomas Eriksson, CEO of Neonode Inc.
