Amazon acquires touchscreen startup for Kindle

Posted on Thursday, February 04 2010 @ 19:49:10 CET by


Future versions of Amazon's Kindle may feature a touchscreen, as the company has just bought touchscreen startup Toucho and merged it with its Kindle hardware division.
The company will be merged with Lab126, a.k.a. the Kindle hardware division. Here's why we're excited: the startup claims its interpolating force-sensitive resistance tech can be made completely transparent, works with color LCDs, and can detect "an unlimited number of simultaneous touch points" as well as distinguish between a finger and stylus. Current cost estimates put it at less than $10 per square foot, which The New York Times says is "considerably" less expensive than the iPad / iPhone screens.
