Thanks to new technology that was announced recently in a press release, users are now able to convert their 15.6-inch standard-screen laptops into interactive touch devices. This new technology is called AirBar and it has been developed by a company named Neodone Inc, a Swedish company specialising in Optical Interactive Sensing Technology.

Connecting to a consumer laptop through a single USB port, this sensor beams an invisible light in order to pick up touchscreen presses and gestures. This completely plug and play product is being released firstly for 15.6-inch laptops and comes priced at only $49.

More information on this product can be found on the official website or by watching the video above. Functioning with both Windows and Chrome operating systems, the AirBar will be shown off to the public during CES 2016 in January, taking place in Las Vegas.
