Today we'll talk about some super flexible screens that are definitely the new wave. The flexible touchscreen itself was developed by a UK company called C.I.T (a subsiduary of Carclo PLC).
Atmel, which makes hardware used in devices from Samsung, Acer and LG, this week introduced XSense. Atmel XSense touch sensors open a new world of possibilities for touch-based products. If you are unfamiliar, XSense is a capacitive touch sensor that can be bent and bonded to surfaces of any shape.
"XSense can best be described as a high-performance, highly flexible touch sensor which allows engineers to design devices with curved surfaces and even add functionality along product edges"
"According to Mr. Steve Laub (CEO of Atmel), Atmel is now positioned to ramp volume production for this revolutionary new technology".
Check out how revolutionary new Atmel XSense touch sensors can bring touch functionality to a wider array of consumer and industrial products. OEMs will be able to create larger, lighter, sleeker, curved and edgeless designs.
The video below, aimed at industrial designers, posits that the flexible touchscreens could also be used for “completely new products” such as coffee machines and watches.
