Interactive Surface Technology (IST) from 3M Touch systems allows users to apply a touch interface to virtually any surface.

The interactive touch surface is constructed of a flexible polyester layer that can be laminated to the front or back of any surface, or applied to a contoured surface.

The technology is aimed at traditional touch application segments such as retail, point-of-sale, kiosks and industrial applications.

Interactive Surface Technology is also suitable for outdoor environments, mobile and handheld devices, and on and off-display implementation for automobiles.

Mobile devices and handheld computers with MicroTouch IST, for example, can be activated with finger, stylus, or gloved hand.
