A subsidiary of the 3M Company has showcased a prototype 84-inch projected capacitive (PCAP) touchscreen display at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The working prototype multi-touch display, which measures 84-inches or 2.13 metres across the diagonal and covers the entire surface of a table, is one of a number of PCAP displays being exhibited by 3M Touch Systems at the CES.
