Neonode Airbar for 15.6" Display Add touch to 15" PC Display (1004)



Air bar gives your PC touchscreen capabilities.

The sleek, lightweight device emits an in visible light field over a PC screen that senses touch from any finger, stylus, paintbrush, etc. Air bar enables touch for Chromebooks PCs running Windows8.1OR 10.

I would somehow add in the mix a screen protector film (plain displays are not engineered to be "touched" or "swiped" on).

Since Regular laptop screens are not made of glass.Yeah! That's a good idea. Specially, if you have nails, use a stick of some kind, or have heavy hands(fingers).

All PCs have touch screens, you can touch the screen all day long, nothing stopping you. But you may or may not get the results you're after.


I will look into this when I get around to buying the new gaming laptop I've been saving for, most are not designed for touch, the few that are are exorbitantly expensive. This seems like a cheaper alternative.


Mobile device manufacturers have been pumping out touch-enabled devices for a very long time, it's about time PC manufacturers got with the program and make this feature standard on all computer screens.


I see they only make these for 15", they will need to make a 17" version before I would buy.

Just get a 17 inch screen with a 1 inch of black border on each side (15inch display with 2inch non usable black border). That way you can use the 15inch Airbar .
