Automation can be pretty

AAEON has released this for the aesthetically conscious automation deployment, and it actually looks quite nice as well as being rugged enough to hold up in a pure industrial environment. And with home automation becoming more prevalent, it can also fit in there as part of a contemporary design.

As good as glass in for a touchscreen, sometime I would prefer a plastic one. One I could drop, ding, bump, etc. Then you'd have rugged.

That's true, Cabe, plastic is a lot more durable. But I think glass looks a lot nicer. And how often do you really drop a screen or a computer? Hopefully not that often! (Although of course, dings do happen.)

I suppose you are right. I most likely would never have an accident with my desktop. But tablets and cells is another story.

Yes, tablets and cells could definitely use more ruggedized screens. I've never smashed up a screen myself but I have seen iPhones with smashed screens that are virtually rendered useless. That's a pretty expensive piece of useless machinery! I think in this case, the glass suits the design pretty well.

Capacitive Touch

Since they are doing a dual target of industrial and home use, I'm surprised that they are using the capacitive touch.  Many industrial plant are now requireing gloves as a standard safety precaution, which don't work that well with capacitive.

To find a good printer in Canada. I would suggest using the following companies: Toronto Printing Companies | Calgary Printing Companies | Winnipeg Printing Companies | Montreal Printing Companies | Regina Printing Companies | Saskatoon Printing Companies | Quebec Printing Companies | Ottawa Printing Companies | Edmonton Printing Companies | Vancouver Printing Companies | These companies provide the best and most affordable price in whole Canada. Other printing companies I suggest would be Print Quote Services | Printing Company | Best Local Printer | Some other local cities have great printers as well such as the following: Charlotte Printing | Dallas Printing | Nashville Printing

If you are looking to print custom stickers. The following is my best choice: Label and sticker printing | Print Custom Sticker | Print Stickers | No only they offer the best sticker printing quality but also unbeatable price.

Nowadays, it is hard to find quality print trader. This is my recommendation for best print trader in the united states Best Print Trader | Lowest Price Printing Wholesale | Print Outsourcing | Print Broker Trade

Lastly, all print should comes with a state of the art Print Management Software. I would highly recommend this print software tool.
