Microsoft Unveils LucidTouch Prototype

Microsoft LucidTouch

Microsoft has unveiled a prototype device called LucidTouch. The transparent multi-touch allows users to control the LucidTouch from behind and they will still be able to see their fingers. Microsoft has developed this device thanks to a technology called pseudo-transparency and the idea was to give users the possibility to control a device without blocking the view to the screen. According to Microsoft, when controlling from behind you have a higher precision and you can operate with ten fingers if that’s physically possible.

    I honestly don’t like touch screen crap. :/ It’s way too sensitive, breaks easily, and a tad overrated.
