Zytronic touch technology has been used to create the double sided, 55-in interactive display in the slimline Blade kiosk created by Design to Production and currently being piloted in Australian Volkswagen showrooms.

It is based on Zytronic’s Zybrid touch sensors together with its latest ZXY500 multitouch touch controllers which when mounted to either side of the Blade display adds only 12mm to the profile of the unit, bringing the whole kiosk to 40mm thickness.

Using Zytronic touch technology was part of the Blade’s design specification from the earliest design phase:

Peter Gordon, director at Design to Production, said: “For the Blade to be interactive, was key. That’s why we love Zytronic because they make the best, high performance capacitive touchscreens. The feedback we received regarding The Blade has been very positive. People just can’t believe The Blade is touch enabled on both sides — they couldn’t figure out how we added touch and maintained such a slim profile. That’s a testament to the projected capacitive technology that Zytronic produces — it’s market leading.”
