Synaptics showed off its latest technology, the Synaptics ClearPad 3000 Touchscreen. The capacitive touchscreen is designed for high-end smartphones, portable gaming systems and other mobile devices, according to Gizmodo. The Synaptics ClearPad 3000 Touchscreen has 48 sensing channels that can register up to 10 fingers simultaneously and can scale up to an eight-inch screen, meaning the technology could end up being used in netbooks.
ClearPad 3000 brings with it new gesture-based controls. According to Synaptics product marketing director Andrew Hsu, users will be able to toss away an e-mail by mimicking the action of crumpling up a piece of paper. Components for the technology will be made available by Synaptics in November, VentureBeat reports.
