AUO Solar Powered Touchscreen Laptop Keyboard to be showcased on Nov 10

AU Optronics, the market leading LCD panel maker, has designed a 14-inch, 2.1mm thick, touchscreen keyboard solution for notebooks -- the most salient feature of which is its ability to get charged from solar power. The company claims that the touchscreen display for a virtual keyboard brings down the electric power usage by 20 % since it is solar powered.

The transparent touch keyboard has the solar module built within the notebook’s cover and keyboard panel. The modules are specially designed to work even in the absence of enough sunlight as they can absorb energy from electric light as well.

The Company will showcase the new solar powered touch keyboard solution for notebook on November 10th at the upcoming FPD International 2010 in Japan. --------
