From advanced touchpads and touchscreens to touch controls that offer feedback, we provide a total, integrated input package. In addition to off the shelf products we work closely with notebook computer OEMs to create custom solutions for almost any input requirement.
Cirque's GlidePoint® touchpad, the original capacitive touch solution, is now featuring Advanced Gestures. A complete suite of single and multi-finger gestures are available allowing users to interact in advanced ways without ever leaving the touchpad. Pinch-zoom, two finger rotate and two finger scroll are just some of the possibilities.
In addition to Advanced Gestures, GlidePoint touchpads feature all the classic touch functionality options such as programmable tap zones, scroll zones, tap and drag and GlideExtend® which allows the user to effectively drag files beyond the edge of the pad. GlidePoint pads are extremely durable with a wide operating temperature range ideal for harsh environments, and are highly moisture resistant. GlidePoint pads can be used even if moisture droplets are present on the surface. GlidePoint hardware is accompanied by rich driver support. Completely customizable drivers are available to fully cater to end user and OEM requirements.
