3M says touch anywhere (almost)

From KioskMarketplace:

3M Touch Systems Inc. announced in a news release a new touch technology platform, Interactive Surface Technology, which offers the ability to apply a touch interface to nearly any surface.

IST is an evolution of 3M's projected capacitive touch technology. The interactive touch surface is constructed of a flexible, polyester layer that can be laminated to the front or back of any surface, or applied to a contoured surface. The substrate for lamination can be plexiglass, polycarbonate, plastic, glass, laminated glass or any other non-conductive surface. In addition, MicroTouch IST can support "on display" use with LCD panels or "off display" use creating touch pad or button interface designs not using a display.

That's pretty much all of the text from that article, but in the interest of citing, and not stealing, here's the link.
