Touch Capsule / Touch control device

Touch Capsule

For current device, we can only use touch control for the device that have been support to touch. we want to change this relation: Give the initiative back to human, bring the touch ability to machine.
The Touch Capsule is simple but highly effective way to convert any display into a touch-sensitive device! It consists of two components: a transceiver unit provides a wireless link to one (or more) fingertip sensors the user wears. After you insert the transceiver into device's USB ports, tap on the corners of your screen using the fingertip sensor to make a adjusting at beginning. Then you can perform touch-based operations using the display!
