Besides ensuring your Precrime officer keeps on the straight and narrow, the applications a double-sided touch screen would offer are numerous. Thus it was a special treat to see Japan’s Teraokaseiko debut their double-sided touch display at last week’s Sign & Display Show in Tokyo. The screen interface, a product of Teraokaaseiko’s transparent inorganic EL panel technology, can be used simultaneously on either side.
Once the panel is distributed to the retail market the company expects it to be used for a wide array of applications including gaming and mapping software. And, just in case you were wondering, it employs the now well known pinching function so popular on the iPhone, so when these things hit the streets you won’t need to brush up on your John Anderton impressions.
