The Touchless Touchscreen Monitor

Sure, everybody is doing touchscreen interfaces these days, but this is the first time I’ve seen a monitor that can respond to gestures without actually having to touch the screen.

Touchko Display

The monitor, based on technology from TouchKo was recently demonstrated by White Electronic Designs and Tactyl Services at the CeBIT show. Designed for applications where touch may be difficult, such as for doctors who might be wearing surgical gloves, the display features capacitive sensors that can read movements from up to 15cm away from the screen. Software can then translate gestures into screen commands. Check out the video below for a demonstration:

I suppose that gadgets like Sony’s EyeToy let you remotely control software using hand gestures, but this technology is unique in that it’s self-contained to the monitor itself.
