[CES 2009] Intel 3D Touchscreen Is Skinny, Smooth, Nearly Invisible

intel_screen

By Evan Ackerman

This transparent touchscreen at the Intel booth was being used to demonstrate how powerful their new Core i7 processors are. The screen was performing all kinds of fancy interactive visual tricks with a framerate readout in one corner that managed to hit 1500 fps (!) on occasion while never dropping below 400 fps.

The screen itself is nothing more than a capacitive touch panel (single touch, boo) sandwiched between two sheets of glass, which allows it to create a sort of glasses-free 3D effect. At first glance I got all excited thinking that this WAS the entire display, but it’s actually just a screen of sorts with a projector behind it. Oh well.

There’s no way this transparent touchscreen is going into production, which is a shame… It’s gorgeous, and would work brilliantly paired with one of those ultra short throw projectors.

    You can buy the transparent touch screen from either from http://www.holopro.de or http://www.sax3d.com in fact Sax3d have a version of their screen that uses the NEC short throw projector. Both screens use the Visual Planet ViP interactive foil which is a projective capacitance clear touch foil that works through glass up to 20mm thick see http://www.visualplanet.biz
