Tactus, a Fremont, California-based company, reportedly developed this new Tactile Layer technology that turns a typical flat tablet screen into a real keyboard with bumpy buttons.
A keyboard reportedly rises from the tablet screen when typing is needed and automatically disappear after typing.
As provided at Tactus’ website, below are some of the features of the Tactile Layer technology.
- Replaces window and sits on top of the existing touch screen
- Works with existing touch sensing and display technologies
- Minimal power consumption
- Size is scalable (mobile-phone screen to TV screen)
- Button layouts, shapes, location and sizes can be customized
According to Tactus, its new technology:
Provides a new dimension of user interface with a fundamentally unique solution: application-controlled, completely transparent physical buttons that rise up from the touch-screen surface on demand. With the buttons enabled, users can push and type or rest their fingers as they would with any physical button or keyboard. When the buttons are disabled, they recede into the screen, becoming invisible and leaving a smooth, seamless flat touch-screen with maximum viewing area.
