Tactus Technology Announces Technical Excellence Award from PCMag.com & New Integrated 7" Tablet Demonstration at CES 2013
CES 2013, Venetian, Eureka Park 75110 – Tactus Technology, Inc., (Fremont, CA) the leader in next-generation touchscreen components, today announced the latest in a string of industry awards and recognition - the coveted PCMag.com 2012 Technical Excellence Award, honoring "the most amazing advances in computing."
Joining industry luminaries such as Google®, Nokia®, Nvidia® and Sharp® on the 2012 list, this is the 29th year in a row PCMag.com editors have singled out the annual breakthroughs in science, electronics, and technology they believe had the most impact. PCMag.com analysts believe the ideas behind the creation of items on this list will benefit the industry, consumers, and businesses for years to come.
At CES 2013 in Las Vegas, Tactus is demonstrating the world's first fully-integrated dynamic touchscreen tablet. This 7" tablet showcases the Tactus tactile touchscreen technology and introduces an entirely new category of product made possible through the Tactus Morphing Tactile™ surface.
By enhancing both function and usability with Tactus, it is now possible to merge the essential capabilities of smartphones, tablets and laptops through a true physical interface. In a world of flat, static devices, Tactus brings new life to touchscreens by enabling real, physical buttons that rise up from a screen's surface on demand and then disappear back into the screen, leaving a flat, transparent surface when no longer needed.
Finally, a new video has been released on Vimeo™ showcasing the very latest in Tactus Technology being demoed at CES 2013 - the previous Tactus video surpassed more than 2 million views in under 3 months. The video may be seen at http://vimeo.com/56879525.
