Well! While the humble touchscreen has become the standard interface for most smartphones, and capacitive displays make it a painless experience, the folk at start-up Qeexo think things could still be improved.
They developed a technology called FingerSense that could add even more functionality. Essentially, by using a small acoustic sensor, it measures the vibrations as objects tap the screen, and can tell the difference between them. So, for example, a knuckle tap could be used for “right-click.”
The tech is able to spot the difference between materials, too, so even when no finger is involved, it can register input, a great assistance to those with longer fingernails.
The fun doesn’t stop there, though, with the demo video that you can check it below, Demoed on a Galaxy SIII with a modified display, able to register stylus input, even without official support for it.
The purporting LG Nexus 4 has surfaced another time, this time is a pictures purporting to be from the LG Nexus have shown up before, but their EXIF data referenced the “Mako” codename. This is the first time we’ve seen pictures tagged “Nexus 4,” a name first heard when leaked in retailer listings. French newspaper Le Figaro has claimed the Nexus 4 will be revealed on October 29th.
This embedded image information is very easy to fake or tweak, mind you, so we may see more developments on the subject of the next Nexus’ name.
Remember that rumors says that the Nexus 4 packs a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with four ferocious Krait cores inside, an 8 MP snapper, 2 GB worth of RAM and a 4.7 True-HD IPS display of 768 x 1280 pixels resolution and most importantly, has Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on tap.
An unverified October 29 date has been pinpointed as the day Google will step forth and unleash the Nexus 4 to the world.
We’ll keeps you updated when the event will take place.
