touchskin User Interfaces

Touch-sensitive surfaces with integrated lighting for seamless integrations

touchskin User Interfaces are touch-sensitive surfaces with integrated lighting for the application in e.g. automotive interior and exterior surfaces, in appliances or in furniture surfaces. In some ways, the touchskin User Interfaces are like touch screens, but there are some major differences.

touchskin Is No Touch Screen

Unlike the touch screen, touchskin User Interfaces can be seamlessly integrated even in large 3D surfaces. Because of the 3D shapeable surface, for example, also a finger guide can be realized.

A touchskin User Interface consists of clearly defined controls and lighting elements, which are fixed positioned on the surface according to certain rules. The surface can be variously designed in terms of haptics, visual effects and forms.

touchskin User Interfaces are manufactured using multiskin technology. Therefore, the parts with touchskin User Interfaces can be realized very thin (<3mm) and lightweight.
