AirBar Lets You Convert a Normal Laptop Screen Into a Touchscreen
Ever wanted a touch-screen laptop but don’t want to buy a new one just for it?
Well, there’s this cool piece of technology that you might be interested in if you’re suffering from touchless syndrome.
Thanks to a new technology that was recently announced, users have the ability to turn their 15.6 inch non-touchscreen laptops into interactive touch devices. It’s called an AirBar, which connects to a laptop through a single USB port.
The AirBar has been developed by a Swedish company named Neodone Inc. They specialize in Optical Interactive Sensing Technology, so they probably know what they’re doing.
Once the AirBar is connected to a laptop via USB, the sensor sends a beam of invisible light across the screen, which picks up touchscreen presses and gestures.
The product is being release first for 15.6 inch screens, retailing at a price of only $49. AirBar supports both Windows and Chrome operating systems, and will be shown off to the public in January 2016 at the CES event held in Las Vegas.
