Touchscreen-Enabling Peripherals

The NeoNode 'AirBar' Creates a Laptop Touch Screen in One Step

— December 28, 2015 — Tech
The functionality of the touchscreen has become commonplace, but for devices that don't have the functionality the NeoNode 'AirBar' is designed to help create a laptop touch screen in one simple step.

Connecting to devices via USB, the NeoNode 'AirBar' works by being installed onto the bottom of laptop screens; from here, the device goes to work sensing touches to maneuver through the operating system.

Working well with Windows and ChromeOS, the NeoNode 'AirBar' has limited functionality within OS X. Fitting onto laptop screens 15.6-inches in size, the NeoNode 'AirBar' is priced competitively at around $50, which makes it a great alternative to creating a laptop touch screen rather than having to purchase an entirely new system.

Set to go on sale next month, the NeoNode 'AirBar' is a streamlined, efficient way to get the functionality of today with the technology of yesterday.
