Neonode 3D touch headed to tablets and phones: Hands-on

Neonode 3D touch headed to tablets and phones: Hands-on

Touch tech is gaining an extra dimension, if Neonode has its way, with the company demonstrating its brand new Multi-Sensing system for 3D phone, tablet and other gadget manipulation at MWC 2012. Announced last week, the new finger-tracking kit uses light rather than physical touch sensors: in Neonode's demo, you can reach through the frame and control on-screen graphics. However, Neonode envisages special cutaway sections showing up on tablets, phones and laptops, allowing us to more precisely interact with the device UI.

Neonode supercharges multitouch

Multitouch touchscreens are set to get significantly more immersive and responsive, if Neonode is to have its way, with the company's new Multi-Sensing technology that can identify objects, respond to gloved fingers and more. Based on the same zForce system as already implemented by several devices, the Neonode Multi-Sensing system can track the size, pressure, depth, speed and proximity of an object to a surface, opening the door to more advanced art and notation apps on tablets, more safely navigated content-rich car dashboards, and more.

Neonode N2 reaching vaporware hall of fame

Neonode N2 reaching vaporware hall of fame

Well, its not hard to find info or pics on the Neonode N2, but what is hard, is actually finding it on shelves. Press event after press event we see the Neonode N2, we hear all about its specs, but I have yet to even see a price let alone a ship date.

I take that back, there is a price, its 439 Euro, or about $600, for the SIM-free model, but that was a few months ago, and back then we actually thought we might see it hit retail sometime soon. The iPhone has surely by now stolen the market for those that would have bought such a device.

Neonode N2 now available across Europe; US & Asia 2008

Neonode N2 now available across Europe; US & Asia 2008

From luscious to laughing stock, few know the droop into vaporware status as well as the Neonode chaps.  Their well-documented plan to beat the big cellphone companies at their own game and outshine them with the N1 cellphone turned out to be a tardy, pitiful mess; more recently, the N2 grabbed headlines but little else thanks to an official launch but no release date.  Well, Neonode are hoping to turn that around; the N2 should now be available in multiple European markets, and they're even planning US and Asia launches sometime next year.
