Neonode Drives Industry Innovation with Its New Multi-Sensing Touch Technology

Published February 21, 2012 in Press release

Taking multi-touch to a new level of user experience, Optical Touch pioneer Neonode will demonstrate its latest innovation Multi-Sensing technology – for the first time ever – at the
Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.

Stockholm, February 21, 2012 – Neonode Inc. (NEON.OB), is at the forefront of optical touch technologies and provides solutions to several global key manufacturers of touch enabled devices.

Neonode’s new Multi-Sensing technology demonstrates a far more augmented and profound user experience than traditional multi touch. Multi-Sensing is developed to help OEM’s and device manufacturers to differentiate themselves in a competitive market. The Multi-Sensing technology can be implemented into a wide range of commercial devices such as smart phones, tablets and automotive and inflight infotainment systems.

This cutting-edge technology identifies any object and determines its size, the pressure, any depth, the speed and the proximity of an object to a surface. It uses light with zero latency that can sense and determine objects like a pen, brush, bare/gloved finger or larger objects like a hand, at very high speed.

The Multi-Sensing is built on Neonode’s patented optical 2D multi touch solution, zForce, already implemented in millions of proven touch consumer devices in the global market.

Neonode will showcase the new technology at MWC, where visitors and media are invited to experience the broad reaching potential of Multi-Sensing.

Commenting on the introduction of the Multi-Sensing Touch Frame, Thomas Eriksson, CEO of Neonode, said: “The possibilities with Multi-Sensing are endless and it will take our first class offer of optical touch solutions to a new level. In the future, optical multi-sensing technology is likely to be a reality for a wide range of devices.”
