Displax has announced its latest solution for object detection on touchscreens. Displax Tag – Active OR is a combination of hardware and middleware which enables interactive solutions developers to integrate and deliver powerful Object Recognition (OR) interactive experiences, going beyond traditional OR solutions.
The Displax Tag is a solution of active tags that, besides the common features of all the typical OR tags, delivers some features that actually give the user feedback, such as visual feedback (RGB LED ring light); haptics (vibration motor); tap detection; in_range and in_contact reporting; joystick mode (to enable the usage of a tag away from the screen).
The Displax Tag allows up to six tags to work simultaneously and up to 84 different IDs, allowing the user to switch tags on the table without any extra configuration. This upgrade allows companies to showcase more than 16 tags.
The new wireless charger allows a quick and simple placing of the tag on top of the charger to get it fully charged. This wireless charger can also be integrated into the table itself for a more premium look.
Pedro Marques, CTO at Displax said, “This is a remarkable team effort that has been under development since last year. It continues our commitment with innovation, following a road that has been the DNA of this company for the last 15 years.”
He continued, “We wanted to improve the user experience, combining a touchscreen and an object, involving more senses and emotions when in contact with the tag and this product really opens a new cycle for the object detection market.”
