Europe drives large multi-touch screen developments with €20million boost
June 18, 2012 // Nick Flaherty
European start-ups are driving new technologies for large, multi-touch screens with new investment and new technologies.
FlatFrog intends to use the funds to expand its team during 2012 to accelerate the development and commercialization of its 32in multi-touch screen (left and video below) that started shipping in May.
Since we began developing our unique multi-touch technology more than five years ago, our goal has been to bring supreme multi-touch technologies to the mass market by providing flawless user experiences at affordable prices, said Christer Fhraeus, CEO, Chairman and Founder at FlatFrog. At the right price-points and with the right technology, we believe every screen in the world will be touch-enabled. This new investment round, and the collaboration opportunities created by teaming with Intel Capital, will allow us to run even faster to reach our goal.
By using sophisticated algorithms to track light travelling inside the cover glass of a screen, FlatFrogs Planar Scatter Detection technology provides instant and perfect detection of up to hundreds of simultaneous touches and drags. FlatFrogs PSD technology is based on optics instead of the traditional capacitive electronic fields used in the vast majority of todays high-end touch-enabled mobile devices. As a result, touch screens based on PSD detect not only input from bare fingers, but also from gloved fingers, passive styli and many other common objects such as pencil erasers.
