Shoei’s Optical/Resistive Touch Panel on Display Automotive Electronics Technology Expo

As the outside of our vehicles get more advanced, the inside is advancing at a far quicker pace. And while having the word "resistive" in any type of touchscreen implementation may not seem all that advanced to anyone, Shoei has created a hybrid touch panel that actually uses resistive technology in a useful fashion. Of course, it helps that the company doesn't have any intention of implementing their idea in an actual display.
