Do you have an old Windows laptop or Chrome Book that’s lacking touch support? Do you wish it supported touch? Well, if so, the Neonode Airbar is for you.
Basically, it will turn just about any 15″ laptop running Windows or ChromeOS into a touchscreen device. All you have to do is attach the Airbar, plug it into a USB port, and load the software.
There's also a Mac-compatible version available which is nice since Apple refuses to make touchscreen laptops
Also, unlike many touchscreens, the Airbar will recognize any object touching the screen. Using one, you can make touch inputs with a finger, glove, paintbrush, stylus and it’ll work fine. Be aware, though, that it might get confused if you touch the screen with too many things at the same time.
The Airbar supports common touch gestures such as pinch, sweep, zoom and scroll, just like a new touchscreen device.
