Nokia had a lot of innovation to show at the Nokia World in London. We’ve already seen the Lumia mobile phones and the flexible smartphone prototype, and now this smudge-free touchscreen. For all of us touchscreen phone users, a screen like this would be a gift from the gadget gods.
Imagine a touchscreen free from those unsightly and irritating smudges, a freedom to use your phone and probably soon enough, world peace. Okay, the last one isn’t happening anytime soon, but nothing wrong with hoping.
The system is made of a tiny nanotube coating covering the glass. This covering is super hydrophobic, repelling water and other liquids that may show up on the screen.
