QTC Clear is a force sensing material can be used to create Force
Sensitive touch screens that can replace current Resistive touch screen
technologies or enhance Capacitive ones to create solutions with more features
such as 3D input. The QTC Clear layer is 6-8 microns thick with a transparency
that is similar to the existing touch screen technologies. This is sandwiched
between two layers of Indium Tin Oxide, which is sandwiched between two hard
sheets, typically glass. It is sensitive that it can detect deflections of
a few microns so that the top surface can be rigid and robust, e.g. glass,
unlike current Resistive designs that have to be soft enough to deform easily
making them susceptible to damage.
Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
