Zytronic ports its PCT to curved surfaces

Zytronic plc, a developer of projected capacitive technology touch sensing (PCT), has ported its rugged touchscreen solutions to curved surfaces (along one axis). The solution comes in customised sizes from 19 inch to over 46 inch diagonals.

This large format, curved surface product is available in single-, dual- or multi-touch configuration, enabling curved interactive surfaces for gaming, digital signage displays or vending machines. The laminated touch sensor could also be used on surfaces with rear projection systems, the latest wave of curved LCDs, or even OLED displays.

The radius of the curve can be specified by the customer and the touchscreen can be made with a convex or concave configuration. It is envisaged that the convex designs will be attractive to designers of gaming equipment, where an interactive 'spinning reel' movement can be simulated.

The concave versions of the technology will facilitate the merging together of several angled screens to create a single, seamless user interface. In both cases, the added dimension creates an organic feel, and allows industrial designers to really push the boundaries of what is possible with touch interactivity, no matter the size or environment for deployment.
