Touch screens are certainly cool when used in the right place. I’d like to see my old Razr go the way of the Dodo in favor of a nice touch screen phone.

Touch screen tech isn’t all that great for those who have used it to replace a PC mouse. The pointer never seems to go where you want it too. Another big side effect is that you end up with gobs of greasy fingerprints all over your screen.A company called TouchKo has a solution for the dirty display woes associated with touch screens in the form of a touch screen you don’t have to touch; it relies on sensors that allow you to control the screen from up to six inches away. Intended for medical use the technology behind it will likely make its way to consumer gear at some point. Story and image via Sci Fi Tech.
