TC-1 Touch Controller
The TC-1 from Technovision provides the ability of controlling RS232 devices such as the DV75N HD1080p video player or TecMP3 MP3 player using capacitor touch inputs.
This technology allows "buttons" to be defined as any object that can induces an electrical charge. This can range from a metal bar to even a rock.
Non-conductive materials such as wood (or drywall) can be placed above touch zones where a simple swipe of the hand close to that area can be interpreted as a "keypress" - EVEN THROUGH GLASS.
This allows designers the ability to design touchpoints without having to use traditional, mechanical pushbuttons. This technology has been used in elevator switches, to activate displays within store windows, or to turn lamps on by touching them.
