International CES 2013
Neonode to demonstrate the latest MultiSensing^TM features, such as
Water Submerged Tablets, Super-Sensory Steering Wheels, and Proximity Sensing
for an extended and enhanced mobile user experience.
Visitors and Media are invited to meet the Neonode Team at the Las Vegas
Convention Center (LVCC) South Hall 4, Booth 37116, from January 8^th to the
2013 International CES 2013 International CES:Neonode
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- January 3, 2013
Neonode Inc., (NASDAQ: NEON), the optical touch technology company, will be
publicly introducing and demonstrating its latest proximity and 3-dimensional
sensing technologies, for the next generation of touch-enabled consumer
devices and car ergonomics, at the International CES 2013, which will be held
in Las Vegas from January 8^th to the 11^th.
Neonode will be showcasing at two CES floor venues:
*Neonode’s main booth at LVCC’s South Hall 4, Upper Level: Booth 37116. For
more information see http://www.neonode.com/ces2013 or for a floor map
*Neonode’s technology for the automotive industry featured in Texas
Instruments’ Automotive Experience Zone: LVCC North Hall: N116 and N117.
Embodying the spirit of the new “Apply Life!” concept
(http://www.neonode.com/ces2013), Neonode has developed a multi-function
steering wheel for the automotive industry and is showcasing it in close
cooperation with Texas Instruments, in their Automotive Experience Zone. A
driver can now interact with this next-generation Neonode-powered steering
wheel, using gestures to fully control audio, visual, infotainment, and
telematics systems. This allows for a whole new HMI (human machine interface)
system, that replaces old, traditional buttons and other mechanical input
devices, with unlimited gestures and best-of-breed multi-touch functionality.
Neonode will also demonstrate new ways of using proximity sensing (i.e.
touch-less control) to expand the user’s gesture-area beyond the physical
(i.e. touchable) borders of the device display. These new proximity-sensing
features significantly enhance the user experience on mobile phones, tablets,
toys, and gaming devices.
Neonode’s patented optical touch technology is also a top match for devices
that must withstand and function in extreme environmental conditions and
temperatures. To showcase these features, Neonode will be demonstrating a
water-submerged touch-enabled device, which will allow visitors to interact
with it in and under water.
“We have made it our mission to develop the next generation of touch
solutions, significantly raising the bar and perception of possibilities,”
said Thomas Eriksson, Neonode CEO. “Our patented MultiSensing^TM technology
has emerged from years of design-driven innovation, and is now enabling user
experiences that could transform the way the world interacts with devices.
Thus, we are very excited to publically invite all CES attendees to experience
our latest touch innovations.“
Neonode’s MultiSensing technology, which rivals the best capacitive solutions,
is being incorporated into wide array of high volume products worldwide:
mobile phones, tablets, office equipment, in-car infotainment displays, GPS,
gaming devices and toys.
Companies like SONY, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) and
many other well-known name-brands, manufacture products based on Neonode’s
MultiSensing technology. Neonode’s touch solutions incorporate the customized
Neonode NN1001, the world’s first single optical controller chip, which has
been developed in close collaboration with Texas Instruments. To date, the
Neonode MultiSensing solution is used on more than 10 million touch consumer
devices in the global market place.
