GlassTek, a leading US company offering premier glass technology products and services, offers a new product called an IR Touch Frame, or also referred to as Multi-Touch. This product fits on top of any monitor to make it an interactive touch screen display. This Multi-touch technology has been aptly named for the ability to simultaneously detect a minimum of 2 touch points, meaning where you have touched the screen. GlassTek offers a 6-point touch system, how many simultaneous fingers, on the screen, can be recognized by the touch overlay.
"Being able to make any screen a Multi-Point Touch Screen display allows users to get creative with their applications," said Jin Pak, President of GlassTek, "such as interactive display tables where certain applications necessitate an accessible type of display laid out horizontally instead of a vertical display."
