Ultra-sensitive Touchscreen for Everyone
Earlier while announcing stretch goals, we briefly mentioned Ultra-sensitive Touchscreen as one hardware upgrade which we had originally planned as a stretch goal. But because there is no more time frame to wait for a stretch goal with such a crucial part of the hardware, an internal decision was taken to include the Ultra-sensitive Touchscreen as a standard feature in all your TrueSmart.
What is Ultra-sensitive Touchscreen?
Touchscreens work by detecting electrical charge changes on the touchscreen when your finger touches the touchscreen. These changes are run through a series of calculation by the touchscreen controllers to determine the location of your touch. Two things determine the accuracy of this : the electrical charge change (touchscreen) and the calculation (touchscreen controller). Ultra-sensitive Touchscreen is a combination of improvements in both, especially the calculation. New controllers have superior processing abilities to have complex calculations that can determine the most accurate positions. It also has superior calculations algorithms that eliminate false detection, and even detecting weaker charge changes that older controllers couldn't. Plus it is able to make this calculations faster.
So what does that mean?
It means your TrueSmart touchscreen feels responsive, reacts to your touch instantly. It means your touches and on screen typing on your TrueSmart is more accurate and more precise than you are familiar with (most smartphones are still not using this technology yet). It also means you can still use your TrueSmart while wearing gloves - awesome with Autumn coming up as we head into colder seasons.
Here we've got a video of our engineer trying the ultra-sensitive touchscreen on the prototype, using a cloth to simulate typing while wearing gloves. (Don't) Try this with your smartphone, it most likely will not work on your smartphone!
