NEONODE® AIRBAR™ TOUCHSCREEN SENSOR VOTED BY PRESS AS BEST OF CES® 2017

Published January 10, 2017 in Press release

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – JANUARY 10, 2017 – Neonode Inc. (NASDAQ: NEON), the Optical Interactive Sensing Technology Company, reports on a successful week at the 2017 CES in Las Vegas where its AirBar touchscreen sensor for MacBook Air® notebooks was voted one of the best products of the show.

AirBar brings displays to life, adding touch and gesture sensing to both new and existing PCs. AirBar works with laptops running Windows® 10 and on MacBook Air notebooks  as a “Plug and Touch” solution. Simply plug AirBar into the USB port and interact with the display immediately.

The AirBar for MacBook Air story was picked up by over 20 top tier publications such as CNET, The Verge, the New York Post, BGR, Mashable and Wired. A full list can be found at http://www.neonode.com/press-summary-of-airbar-for-macbook-air-notebooks.

The Wall Street Journal’s Joanna Stern tried out a pre-production AirBar for Macbook Air unit and said  ”I was pleasantly surprised at how lag-free the experience was when I plugged it into my own MacBook Air, especially considering Mac OS was designed for a small mouse pointer. A tap on the Safari icon in the dock and it launches. I swiped through photos, panned around Apple Maps, even rearranged icons into folders in Apple’s LaunchPad.”

AppleInsider reported ”Getting a response from touching MacBook Air’s screen is oddly satisfying.”

A number of publications put AirBar for MacBook Air on their best of CES lists:

The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the producer of CES 2017, and products honored reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting edge tech products and services on the market.
