Our vision

Since 1997, Touch technologies have become an integral part of our everyday’s life. Although the industry is introducing ’force sensing’ (a.k.a. ‘3D Touch’) as an upgrade of these technologies, the current offerings are still fairly limited in bringing in new use cases.

At Nanomade, we take the Touch Experience to a whole new level by making any surface (planar, curved, flexible) touch and force sensitive. Our flexible, highly-sensitive, transparent sensing technology offers a new user interface paradigm.
