Albatron's 42-inch touchscreen touched inappropriately

Optical Touch works like a charm


Our old
friend Lars checked out Albatron's recently announced 42-inch Optical Touch Monitor (or OTM), and the new touch tech seems to be working like a charm.

Unlike classic touchscreens, OTM uses a couple of CMOS cameras installed in both top corners of the screen and reflectors at the bottom. In English, the cameras figure out where your finger is before you even touch the screen. Also, you don't have to use your fingers at all, so smudging should not be a problem if you've got a pencil handy.

However, the best thing about the new technology is its rather low price. Basically, costs don't increase significantly if you install it on massive screens, which is not the case with other touch technologies. Albatron is selling a 21.5-inch full HD screen for just over €300 or $450 in select markets.

Anyway, you can check out the video here, just don't tell Lars we told you about it.
