Qeexo’s FingerSense listens to how you touch the screen, enabling different functions for using a fingertip, knuckle, or nail.

With a touchscreen, your fingers control the actions, but these are currently relatively limited. Startup Qeexo wants to expand the interaction by introducing a new dimension of touch. Its FingerSense technology uses a small acoustic sensor to measure vibrations, listening to how you touch the screen.

FingerSense enhances touch interaction by allowing screens to know how the finger is being used for input, so it can tell whether you’re using your fingertip, knuckle or nail. It can also support input from a stylus. This could enable you to perform different functions, for example, touch with a knuckle could mean a right click. Performance is real-time, low-latency, and power efficient. Check out the video below to see FingerSense in action:
