BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 13 /CNW/ -- Stantum Technologies
(www.stantum.com), a pioneer developer of multi-touch sensing technology, is
demonstrating at the Mobile World Congress (Hall 2.1, Stand 2.1F67) next week
a unique new finger-pressure detection capability for its patented
PMatrix(TM), a resistive multi-touch detection platform that lets users
simultaneously move an unlimited number of fingers, fingernails or utensils
(such as styli) on a screen.
The new feature can differentiate three distinct levels of pressure:
soft, medium and hard. Depending on how strong the user touches the screen,
the device is able to react differently. This allows implementation of safer
and more sophisticated interactions with devices such as mobile phones, gaming
consoles, digital cameras, computers, PDAs and PNDs. Sample applications
-- a camera shutter: half pressure to engage autofocus, full pressure to
take the picture;
-- the trigger button of a game console's joypad: half pressure to aim,
full pressure to shoot; and
-- drag and drop: soft touch to select an item, medium touch to move it.
In addition, the finger-pressure detection feature significantly improves
the comfort and reliability of typing on a touch screen by allowing the device
to visualize which key the user is about to press before it is actually
