Microsoft ‘No-Touch’ Display

US tech giant Microsoft is working on new display technologies, including a ‘no-touch’ concept that enables phones, tablets and television to be operated from afar, without the need to physically touch them. The technology will allow the users to control a screen with their fingers even from the other side of the room and put their hands through a screen to ‘touch’ objects.
Microsoft’s Rio Malvar said that it has begun to create machines that move far beyond touch screens. He revealed that the company is working on a wearable device – electronic bracelet – that is capable of detecting movements of fingers, enabling them mimic actions such as screen flicking and poking.

No Touch

The bracelet would allow people to operate a television despite having their back turned or control a mobile phone with their hands in their pockets.
Another concept in the work is “floating display”, which gives the illusion of a globe spinning or a dragon flying, just inches above a flat monitor. Users can interact with these floating items through cameras and motion sensors.
Another prototype allows someone sitting in front of a large screen to see a series of cubes. They can then slip their hands behind the device in order to ‘touch’ these objects. This device operates by surrounding a screen with cameras that can detect the user and their movements, matching them to on-screen items.

Tim Large, a researcher from Microsoft Applied Sciences Group, said that final versions of these displays will be ready in two to five years.
