The capacitive ClearPad 3000 can also recognise a variety of multi-finger gestures, ranging from simple finger taps or pinches, right through to rotations.

Available in sizes of up to 8in and designed for use with the “next generation of 3D graphical user interfaces” on a broad array of handheld gadgets, Synaptics said the latest sensor’s secret lies in a proprietary technology that allows for 48 “sensing channels”.

The 0.300mm thick, borderless sensor sits underneath a gadget's display and can be used with various screen technologies, including OLED.

It’s hard to imagine any situation where you’d need 10 fingers crowded onto an 8in touchscreen, though.

The first ClearPad 3000 shipments will go out to gadget manufacturers in November.
