This chip makes any surface a touchscreen

This «kid» can change the entire market of touch devices.

We All have long been accustomed to . Moreover, we daily use in our life through the touch screens of our smartphones and tablets. But besides the screens there are just the usual touch-sensitive surface that is used almost everywhere. Only here such surfaces initially are produced in such a way as to respond to touch. But with the new design, everything can change. After all, the new miniature chip can do touch any surface.

How to make any surface a touch?

A New type of ultrasound technology works with any content — the glass, wood, plastic and so on. It can open a whole new range of ways of interacting with our gadgets and the surrounding objects. UltraSense Systems, the company behind the invention of technology, said that its ultrasonic system on a chip (the size of a pen tip) is cost-effective and ready for inclusion in consumer devices by 2020.

From a practical point of view, think not only about the physical buttons on the smartphone, but rather touch-sensitive panels instead of embedded inside the case or on the table with «hot spots», which you can click to turn on the light or change the intensity of illumination. We are witnessing a paradigm shift in how we interact with our devices. In our world everything is a digital replaced mechanical, and the transition to the virtual buttons and gestures are inevitable. — said in a press statement Mo Maghsoudnia, founder and CEO UltraSense Systems. The use of ultrasound in touch user interfaces so far has not been implemented properly.

New ultrasound chip essentially uses tiny sound elements to create waves to detect the presence of «obstacles». In this case the finger. The ultrasonic waves can penetrate through any surface. The sensor can be embedded under glass, ceramics, wood, leather and many other materials. How else can you use new technology? Write about it in our .

Touch interfaces can be easily added to the smart watches and various headsets, virtual and augmented reality. — the developers say. They can be used to provide one-touch access to the car – you just pull the handle and open the car. Touch buttons can also be embedded in the steering wheel inside the vehicles. Unlimited flight of fancy.

the Sensory table, which is no small sensor — it's just a normal table

Sensors, was developed by company UltraSense Systems, can work with very small power consumption and does not require a separate CPU for calculations. They can also work if users are wearing gloves. Moreover, sensors UltraSense Systems work even if the way they have obstacles of different thickness and density.

In this UltraSense Systems understand that it is too early to predict exactly how this technology will affect the devices we use every day. But it certainly gives developers more . Incidentally, the same technology used in ultrasonic fingerprint sensors of modern smartphones, such as S10 and Galaxy Note 10 from Samsung to create fingerprint sensor, located under the glass devices.
