Zytronic touch sensors specified into the classrooms of the future
Zytronic has gained an exciting new contract for its Projected Capacitive Technology (PCT) technology. The company is providing the touch functionality needed for Asian user interface specialist VitalTouch’s Interactive School Desk.
This groundbreaking desk design enhances the whole learning process, dispensing with traditional writing equipment and white boards. Each desk incorporates a full colour display with an integrated touchscreen, utilising Zytronic’s ZYPOS 19-inch touch sensor product. The company’s ZXY100 touch controller is also specified, allowing dual touch operation to be realised. The Interactive School Desk has now gone beyond the concept phase, with 10 tables already being used for educational purposes at the Nan-Hu Junior High School in Taipei. This is part of the Taiwanese government’s e-Future Initiative, which will see desks of this kind deployed in 50 schools per year throughout the country.
