Moto Labs shows off its updated sensing-screen concept.
Multiple people, multitouch
Moto Labs' Scalable Multitouch display uses--you guess it--multitouch technology. That means you can use more than one finger as an input device, as shown here. Moto Labs likes to say that you can use as many fingers to control the device as you want, and that you're only limited by the number of fingers you have on each hand.
A Moto Labs engineer solders together a prototype display by hand, which means it will be awhile before these can be churned out by a giant factory. "We do this painstakingly by hand in our lab," CEO Daneill Hebert said. "It's really not an appropriate technique for high-volume manufacturing."
A closeup of the multitouch technology at work. Moto Labs uses the same thin-wire grid technology that underlies single touch screens, but its engineers have figured out how to use it with multitouch applications.
