When working together as a unified input system, Tactual’s Prism™ sensing hardware and Reflex™ software will bring about an impending revolution in touch sensing that will endow smart objects and touchscreens with a digital skin that provides a super-human understanding of who and what is in contact or near-contact with that object across its 3D surface, and how that contact or near-contact changes in real time with no perceivable lag. Objects endowed with a digital skin understand how they are being held, and thus how they are being used. This will enable electronic interfaces and objects to understand touch on a human-level and deliver interactions with physical immediacy, clarity, and precision. This leap in user experience required holistic innovation across the entire touch stack from sensor patterns to touch-controller silicon to sensing / processing algorithms to OS architecture. While Prism™ and Reflex™ were designed as a single, vertically-integrated system, they can be adopted as stand-alone solutions that provide additive, complementary enhancements to today’s natural-user interface user experience.
