AirBar Touchscreen Sensor For MacBook Air Launches at CES


Neonode has today announced the launch of its sleek AirBar touchscreen for MacBook Air 13.3″, that instantly adds touchscreen capabilities to the Apple notebook. The AirBar, which was previously available for the 15” MacBook Pro only, is a thin black bar which attaches to the bottom bezel of your laptop display, and plugs into a USB port to draw power. It then projects an “invisible light field” across the display, enabling the user to seamlessly activate touch and gesture functionalities.

“We believe the community of devoted MacBook Air users will welcome this new product, as AirBar for MacBook Air will surely enhance the user-experience of an already great product,” said Remo Behdasht, Senior Vice President of AirBar Devices at Neonode. “Our goal for AirBar continues to be expanding its application to more devices, across even more markets.”

The new AirBar for MacBook Air comes in brushed aluminum. Among many other unique functionalities, the AirBar also alleviates added weight and glare that is typically unavoidable with regular touchscreen laptops. 

AirBar for MacBook Air will ship in early March and will be available for US $99 through Amazon.
