Watch the video below to see it in action
AirBar adds an invisible light field in front of your screen when you connect it below the screen, and when something like your fingers, pen etc. breaks it, it will consider as a touch and pass it to the PC. One of the main advantage is that, it is not sensing the touch like the normal touchscreens, so you wil be able to use it with anything like chopstick, with glove etc.
AirBar projects an invisible light field on the surface of your display that makes it possible to "touch" the screen and interact with Windows® 8 and 10 gestures. This is all thanks to Neonode's zForce AIR technology, which can be used for all sorts of cool stuff. The reason you can use anything to touch is that the light field reacts to any disturbance.
Multiple touch supported
Pinch, Swipe, zoom, scroll
No glare on the screen and less battery drain than normal touch screens.
Plug it to USB drive and use, No installation needed
Works with anything like brush finger, etc,
The device does not require any software to be installed, you just need to plug it and use it. This will work with Windows 8, Windows 10 or chrome book and for MAC the features are limited. The magnetic tape attached to the device will make it easier to attach it with the Screens.
