Quotes

"When we consider the defining challenges of our time, surely this one should be up there along with the challenge of the environment or economic instability."
"Each of the linear light sources 120 of the conventional optical touch device 100 includes a light emitting diode 122 for providing a plurality of optical signals 123. The optical signals 123 enter into the transparent substrate 110 through the light incidence surface 112. Then, a portion of the optical signals 123 is totally reflected many times in the transparent substrate 110 to emit from the light emitting surface 114. The lens set 140 is configured for receiving the portion of the optical signals 123 and congregating the portion of the optical signals 123 to the light sensing component 130. When a touch surface 116 of the transparent substrate 110 is touched by a touch member 50 (e g., a finger or a pen), the portion of the optical signals 123 arriving at a portion of the touch surface 116 touched by the touch member 50 can not be totally reflected and can not be sensed by the light sensing components 130. Thus, a location of the touch member 50 along an axis can be obtained according to a location of a portion of a sensing region of each of the light sensing components 130 where the optical signals 123 is not sensed. Therefore, the exact location of the touch member 50 on the touch surface 116 can be obtained according to the information sensed by the two light sensing components 130."
