Touch Pad Applications of TactonicTM SensorsMulti-touch pressure sensing touch pads can be made at any size using Tactonic Sensors. Unlike other touch technologies, there is minimal cost penalty for larger sizes. Also due to the full pressure imaging capabilities, advanced functionality such as palm elimination are possible.
This enables the opportunity to have full arm-rest bezel touch pad areas. With this extra size, two handed interaction is possible. Also, using passive printed or molded overlays enables this area to be used as any other type of control such as piano keypads, drum machines, mixing boards or any type of game controls (see Control Panels )
This area can also be used as a writing area that doesn't require the use of any special stylus. It can even be used in bi-modal interaction where one hand 'rotates the paper' while the other hand draws.
