Campbell, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
UICO and Amulet Technologies announced today that they have executed a partnership to support a family of standard products utilizing UICO’s duraTOUCH® projected capacitive touchscreens along with Amulet’s embedded GUI solutions. This alliance makes it easy to rapidly design, modify and deploy high-end graphics on top of the world’s leading real-world touchscreens that operate with direct exposure to extreme temperatures and impact, have the ability to work in the rain, saltwater or fluids without false actuating and support use with wet or even gloved hands. These capabilities, available with single or multi-touch gesturing, are achieved through UICO’s remarkable gloveSENSE® and waterSENSE® technologies, now extended to include a full smartphone-like GUI architecture from Amulet.
“This joint offering eliminates a huge amount of workload and complexity for a durable goods OEM, who has to select the right GUI tools upfront, figure out how to embed them, develop on them, make ongoing modifications, and then successfully interface to a touchscreen, none of which are trivial tasks,” according to UICO’s CEO, Bahar Wadia. “Not only are we delivering touch feature sets that are not currently available in the marketplace, but we have now packaged these with a holistic offering from Amulet that removes these obstacles and delivers a complete Touch + GUI experience very rapidly and cost-effectively. This will be game changing for many of our customers!”
“The smartphone user interface is fast defining the standard for user experiences in all product categories including home appliances and medical devices,” expressed Ken Klask, CTO of Amulet Technologies. “However, it is a challenge for durable goods manufacturers to create smartphone looks without sacrificing durability. The match of Amulet’s embedded GUI solutions with UICO’s duraTOUCH® technology will allow our durable goods customers to have the best of both worlds.”
This alliance will extend UICO’s duraTOUCH® offering to include Amulet’s best-in-class embedded GUI innovations, while providing both companies with a fast-to-market solution for their OEM customers in North America, Europe, and Asia.
