Ellinor Technology has launched a nifty touch-screen system for Apple Macintosh monitors, now up to 21in. Instead of relying on a transparent screen membrane like most other touch systems, the TouchMate sits under the monitor, measures the horizontal pressure being exerted on the screen and works out where it’s coming from. This means that it is pressure-sensitive in the same way as graphics tablets. Because the sensing unit sits under the screen, it can be used for multimedia kiosk work without risk of damaging the screen, but you can bolt on thick protective glass for heavy duty use. The TouchMate plugs into either the ADB or modem ports and comes with a software driver and calibrator. Telephone Ellinor Technology on 01734 311 066 for prices.
