GelTouch Enabled Touchscreens May Eventually Provide “Buttons-on-Demand”
Category: Display Daily

There are many applications in which the availability of a touchscreen greatly enhances a user’s ability to interact with program content. None-the-less, the smooth surface of a touchscreen makes it less suited for use in conjunction with some tasks such as those in which the user’s eyes are occupied away from the display. To address this issue, a multi-organizational team of researchers at the Quality and Usability Lab, Telekom Innovation Laboratories, Technische Universität Berlin (Berlin, Germany) is developing means to produce soft, temporary buttons that can be of almost any fixed shape, size and location on a touchscreen surface. The technology under development by the team is both interesting and different from other approaches that have been reported.
