Now, Korean materials maker NeoView Kolon has taken the wraps off its T-OLED (transparent OLED) technology found on a transparent display that aims to bring the very cool touch-sensitive transcreens of "Minority Report" and "Avatar" from reel to real.
LAS VEGAS--After the launch of the Apple Magic Mouse in 2009, we knew it was only a matter of time before Windows users demanded their own touch-sensitive mouse. Mad Catz delivers just that with its stylish new Eclipse touchmouse, a Bluetooth-enabled pointer that actively responds to a series of gestures on an integrated trackpad.
We hate to do it, but aesthetic comparisons must be made with the Magic Mouse. Just as the Motorola Droid departs from the iPhone silhouette, so does the Mad Catz touchmouse.

It operates on a single AA battery and connects to a host computer via Bluetooth for wireless access.

Make no mistake, however, we're not abandoning our gadgety roots: It's still a digital product, and it even uses the kind of touch technology that we all know and love (sort of).
If the iPhone ushers the phone industry into a new generation of touch-sensitive buttons, keyboards might be the next to follow the trend. A company called AMEW Digital (we've never heard of it either) is trying to get out in front of that curve with its TSK-VX7 wireless keyboard, which features a full set of touch keys in a compact frame. It's still too big to fit into your pocket at 11 inches by 4.3 inches and about half an inch thick, though it's certainly smaller than any standard keyboard. If you're really looking for … Read more
