CES 2013: First capacitive touch case for iPhone announced by Canopy

Touch screens are pretty much the standard across smartphones, and they the most striking difference to mobile phone technology over the past decade. You’d think, then, that the touch screen is perfect, and used to its full potential already. But you’d be wrong. According to Canopy, the touchscreen’s fatal flaw is its user, as every time it is touched, a portion of the screen is temporarily blocked from view by the user’s hand.

Well, this problem seems to have been mended with the Canopy Sensus, an iPhone case that switches the multitouch capacitive touchscreen to the back and sides of the device. The seemingly logical – but possibly very awkward – concept has just been announced at CES, and will be available in a variety of colors for a very reasonable $59.99.

The case will be available for iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5, but if you fancy one, I suggest you wait a while first, as the Sensus relies on support from developers for apps to be compatible with it.

Check out a demonstration of the case below:

    Looks like something Sony has already done with the PSVita. This isn’t necessarily new, but I guess once it’s on an Apple device, everyone will know about it, right? Looks functional enough though. But practical? Not really.
