The big push from Apple’s iPhone is the multi-touch capability of the screen where multiple activities can take place simultaneously.

ClearPad is based on Synaptics’ proprietary sensing technology and offers unique capabilities like multi-finger input, proximity sensing, text entry and high resolution finger input.

ClearPad is a thin solid state film that can be curved and mounted beneath plastics offering mobile designers (Apple) the ability to create sleek and stylized industrial designs. More photos
