Neonode Announces Expanded Screen Size Compatibility for AirBar™

5 Jan 2016

Neonode AirBar™, a tech accessory enabling touch functionality for non-touch displays, will now have compatibility with more PC laptop screen sizes to meet early demand

LAS VEGAS – Jan. 5, 2016Neonode Inc., the Optical Interactive Sensing Technology Company, announced expanded screen size compatibility for AirBar, the company’s product that enables touch functionality on new or existing non-touch PCs running Windows® or Chrome OS™ operating systems, to meet early demand for the product.

AirBar was initially anounced for 15.6 inch screen computers when Neonode began offering pre-orders. . Neonode, however, will expand its AirBar line-up to include notebooks with 11.6 inch,13.3 inch and 14 inch screen sizes. This expanded offering will cover the vast majority of existing notebooks, and new notebooks.

“We have seen a very positive response toward AirBar from end-users, retailers and PC OEMs”, said Remo Behdasht, SVP Business Development at Neonode. “Currently we are diligently working with distribution channels in North America, Europe and Asia to expand AirBar availability. We believe that AirBar can bring an enhanced experience to the PC user like never before. It is for this reason that we are very pleased to offer AirBar for a greater range of devices. We also anticipate this range to grow further so even more people can realize the benefits of AirBar.”

AirBar is a slim sensor that is magnetically attached at the bottom of a PC’s display. When attached and plugged into the USB port the sensor is activated and starts to emit invisible light to detect the user’s touch and gestures. PC users can then interact with their devices using familiar touch actions like swiping, pinching, zooming and scrolling. AirBar is a portable solution intended to be used at home, in the office, at school or when traveling and can be used with fingers, gloves, long fingernails and even paintbrushes.

Neonode will showcase AirBar during the Pepcom ‘Digital Experience!’ event in Las Vegas Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2016, to coincide with the Consumer Electronics Show.

Neonode is offering AirBar online at www.air.bar at an introductory price of $49 for a limited time. The website also contains more information about the product and expected delivery times.
