Add touchscreen functionality to PCs and Laptops with AIRBAR.

Neonode’s AirBar brings touch-screen functionality to any device in an elegant and cost-effective package. It’s a simple USB device that sits near the bottom of your laptop’s screen, bathing it in a grid of invisible, infra-red light. The device will let you use gestures, navigate menus and all the other touch-screen goodness that we’ve come to expect from a modern computing device.airbar-2

AirBar doesn’t require any special software to work its magic. As long as it’s connected to a Windows 7, 8, or 10 machine — or a Chromebook — it’ll just work once it’s been plugged in. Neonode is still working on Mac support, but it’s coming.

One of the coolest things about AirBar is that it doesn’t matter what you touch the screen with. You don’t have to use a special stylus or your fingers — though you can, and even while wearing thick work gloves. Anything that breaks up the light field will do the trick: chopsticks, paint brushes, you name it.

Now you can pre-order the device on Neonode’s site for about $69 (Rs.4500). There have been other devices that have attempted to bring touch screen functionality to your laptop, such as leap motion’s own controller. The device is available in a Matte black finish for 11.6-inch, 13.3-inch, 14-inch and 15.6-inch laptop screens.
