AR Touch Panel / touch technology

AR Touch Panel
AR Touch Panel

The innovative design, AR Touch Panel, provides tangible feedbacks through digital panels. The new design employs TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) to provide proper realistic touch sensations when fingers are operating visual buttons or surfaces. For example, when users press visual buttons to go up or down, the surface conducts proper haptic feedbacks to indicate that the users hit the right button. The experiences of using AR Touch Panel become highly interactive and realistic. Not only general users but also visual impaired persons could be benefited by the innovative design.
