Visteon Combines Touchscreens With Tactile Feel

Posted by Alan at 8:24 PM on January 29, 2011

Jeffrey talks with Visteon about the future of touchscreen technology.  Visteon is merging today’s touchscreen with yesterday’s buttons and knobs.  You will see an example of a car dashboard that, no matter how good the description, you will probably just want to feel for yourself.  Imagine a touchscreen that gives the feel of turning a knob or moving a slider.  This is all probably next-gen stuff, at least as far as cars go, but the technology is being built into such things as touchscreen remotes and appliances today.  Visteon is doing a lot research and working with average consumers to get their ideas.
