Touch Screen Technology for Windows 7  

Posted by Mohammad Talha in , , , , ,

Microsoft continues its WinHEC tour in Taiwan, where we find something new again. Quanta Computer recently showcased new touch-screen technology called Optical Touch.
Unlike conventional touch-screen options, movements and positions are recognized through two cameras located near the top corners of the screen. Multi-touch gestures are supported as well. Quanta says using such a setup would be significantly cheaper than traditional touch-screen setups. But this only applies for smaller panels, since they no longer become cost-effective as the panels get larger. Mass production is to start soon, and is expected to be released sometime near Windows 7’s debut. (story Link)
