New Form of Touchscreen Displays Pioneered, Extremely Multi-Touch – touchco – Gizmodo

You’ve heard of resistive touchscreens, and hopefully you’ve been fortunate enough to own a capacitive touchscreen phone. But have you heard of Interpolating Force-Sensitive Resistance, or I.F.S.R touchscreen technology? Touchco hopes you soon will.A bunch of scientists at New York University’s Media Research Lab have grouped together to form Touchco, which is working on the aforementioned I.F.S.R technology. They want to create touchscreens which are even more multi-touch enabled than we’ve seen so far, capable of receiving simultaneous touch inputs. Apparently these touchscreens can be produced very cheaply, with Touchco hoping to sell them for $10 a square foot.
