touchscreen Revolution: What is Air Button Technology?

What is Air Button Technology: Air Button Technology is a non-contact user input technology that achieves operational control by using sensors and air flow control. Air button technology is based on electrostatic principles and gesture recognition technology, which enables gesture operations without touching objects.

The basic principle is to sense the position and movement of the user's hands by installing sensors around the device or on the screen. When a user's hand approaches the sensing area, the sensor detects changes in the electrostatic field or receives heat generated by the hand, and then converts the signal into specific gesture commands. Users only need to perform various gestures (such as sliding, clicking, rotating, etc.) in the sensing area without actually touching the object or screen.

Air button technology offers several advantages, including:

1. Contactless operation: Users can operate without directly touching the device or screen, which helps reduce the spread of germs and provides a more hygienic user experience.
2. High degree of gesture freedom: Air button technology can recognize and respond to a variety of gestures, such as the position, direction and speed of gestures, providing more freedom and precision.
3. Adapt to complex environments: Compared with traditional touch screen technology, air button technology is more adaptable to environmental interference (such as wet hands, thick gloves, etc.) and can work reliably in complex environments.

Although air button technology has many advantages, there are also some challenges, such as ambient light interference, false triggering and recognition of complex gestures. Therefore, in practical applications, various factors need to be comprehensively considered for system design and optimization.

The future of touch screens is contactless
Touch screen technology enhances many of our devices and makes transactions more convenient. But the pandemic has made the world fear touch screens. The obvious natural progression and solution to this problem is contactless touch screens.

A new technology has been developed that does just that. They call this technology "predictive touch." It combines sensor technology and artificial intelligence to predict the user's intended target and select it before the user touches it. In public settings, this technology could save us from touching displays and contracting and spreading pathogens. We may not realize it, but we touch many different touch screens during our daily transactions. ATMs, self-checkout at grocery stores, parking meters and ticket stations. Even after the pandemic, these touch screens could help us avoid catching a simple cold or flu.

Predictive touch technology will make it safer to use screens in your car by eliminating the time spent interacting with the screen. Tests have shown that the technology reduces the time required to interact with the screen by 50%, keeping the driver’s eyes on the road.

How does contactless touchscreen technology work?

The technology uses a type of artificial intelligence called machine intelligence. It predicts what the user intends to do and performs that action. The technology uses gesture trackers, vision-based or radio frequency-based sensors, user information, environmental conditions, and even gaze trackers to determine the user's goals.

Since you don't need to touch the screen, you may not need a screen at all. This type of contactless technology can be combined with the use of holograms rather than the screen itself. The software-based solution is ready to be easily integrated into existing touch screens and interactive displays.

How does contactless technology fit into society?

The idea of overhauling your entire system to install a new contactless touchscreen may seem like a daunting task. But a group of former Samsung engineers have invented a device that can turn almost any screen into a contactless touchscreen. They use what's called lidar technology.

This new technology can turn almost any screen into a contactless touchscreen. It detects motion and sends signals to the device, telling it how to react. Instead of touching the device itself, the user touches the air within a 180-degree area. If you combine this technology with your existing touch screen, you can interact with the touch screen from a distance. You can wipe the air to keep your device clean and, more importantly, safe.

This contactless technology can be used in many different ways. Users can control the smart TV without a remote simply by tapping the air corresponding to that location on the screen. This is also useful for multitasking. If your hands are dirty and you don't want to touch your laptop, tablet or smartphone, you can simply touch the screen in the air without getting your device dirty. Glamos can sense user movement within a three-foot radius, and the rotating mirror allows for wider coverage.

touchscreen Revolution: touchscreen technology has been evolving since its inception, and it appears when it is needed most. Air button technology, contactless touchscreens or predictive touch – whatever you call it, it’s a much-needed technological advancement in today’s world.
