ZeroTouch can turn a traditional computer monitor into a multi-touch screen
The ZeroTouch multi-touch system is made of 256 IR sensors, similar to what's found in television remote controls. The sensors line the frame and create a web of invisible light in its center.
By suspending ZeroTouch from the air, users can paint on a virtual canvas. Color choices are controlled on an iPhone, while brush thickness is controlled by how much enters the frame. A finger would create a narrow brush while a whole hand or arm would make a wide one.
ZeroTouch is a multi-touch interface that uses infrared sensors to detect touch and movement. It's on dispplay at the Computer Human Interaction conference in Vancouver.
When something enters the ZeroTouch frame, the computer can track it. This is a close up of what the computer sees when ZeroTouch is being used.
When ZeroTouch is placed over a computer screen it turns a traditional display into a multi-touch surface.
