Synaptics produces a promotional video for the ThinTouch keypad from Pacinian


This is the promo video produced by Synaptics, the company that acquired the technology developed by Pacinian, a promising North Idaho startup doing smart things with very thin pads and screens.

The acquisition by Synaptics was two weeks ago. This short video summarizes the advantages the ThinTouch keyboard will provide for companies adding it to their laptops.

A. No moving key parts.

B. Cleaner distribution of light to illuminate keys in darkness.

C. Ability to use force sensing, as in this video where holding down a key makes an uppercase character.

D. Total thinner keypad leaving more room for battery.
