Heber Launches XTouch: A new through-glass touch button for gaming controllers
At this year’s G2E show in Las Vegas, Heber will demonstrate its new XTouch technology for gaming machines. The technology has been created to produce a range of new ‘throughglass’ touch buttons, made to custom specification, that replace the traditional ‘spin’, ‘nudge’, ‘hold’ and other mechanical switches on game machines.
XTouch offers game developers and manufacturers the ability to provide improved game play and player interaction. In glass fronted gaming machines, the XTouch technology can be used to replace mechanical switches removing the need to drill holes in the glass. This improves machine look and feel by integrating the switch icons into the artwork on the glass front, rather than breaking up themed graphics that sometimes occurs with standard switches.
The XTouch technology is mounted behind a wipe-clean glass or perspex sheet where mechanical switches would traditionally be found. LEDs incorporated on the XTouch provide a spectacular illuminated backlight to attract player attention. XTouch is able to sense players touching the glass in a similar manner to a smart phone screen, offering a new way for gamers to interact with a game machine.
XTouch is ideal for all gaming and amusement machines, and can be customised to a range of different sizes, ensuring a bespoke design that is perfect for a wide range of switch applications.
