Mimo Monitors Puts Finger on World's First USB Capacitive Touchscreen

Paul Lilly

Maybe you've heard of Mimo Monitors, maybe you haven't. Either way, the company that's taking credit for "ushering USB touchscreen monitors into the U.S. market" has now conjured up the "Magic Touch," a USB-driven capacitive touchscreen mini-monitor the company claims is an industry first. The Mimo Magic Touch sports a 10-inch display and a single USB 2.0 port, or two USB 2.0 ports if you spring for the deluxe model.

Mimo Monitors envisions its Magic Touch being used in a variety of applications, some of which include point-of-sale (POS) input and entry, corporate videoconferencing, smart home entertainment systems, and industrial/manufacturing controls. It can also be used in healthcare, hospitality, retail, education, sound/video editing, and whereever else you may find a USB touchscreen helpful.

The Magic Monitor is less than an inch thick and weighs under one pound. The screen supports a 1024x600 resolution, 16ms response time, 300:1 contrast ratio, and 200 cd/m2 brightness. Mimo says you can remove the screen and use it independently, as a tethered tablet, or mounted on a wall (VESA 75).

You can pre-order the Magic Touch ($300) tomorrow for December 12th shipping, and the Deluxe ($330) stafor December 20th shipping.
