How does AirBar work?

It projects an invisible light field all over the screen with the help of  zForce Air™ technology sensor. The sensor technology is developed and patented by Neonode Inc. All you need to do is put the stick at the bottom of laptop’s screen. Then AirBar projects an invisible light field over the screen.

And when you touch the screen with your finger or with Chop-Sticks or Glove ( as shown in the video). It breaks light wave, which allows you to give the command to your laptop by just sliding your finger etc. The reason you can use anything to touch is that the light field reacts to any disturbance. And it detects the movements very accurately.

The release is scheduled for the first half of 2016. But you can make a pre-order now to make sure you’re first in line.
