This groundbreaking advancement in digital signage enables people to feel what they see on the touchscreen
CHICAGO, IL—June 10, 2019—Mimo Monitors (www.MimoMonitors.com), the experts in small touchscreen displays, joined forces with Tanvas (Tanvas.co), pioneers of surface haptics, to launch the Mimo Vue with TanvasTouch at InfoComm 2019 (June 12th, 2019). The 10.1” touchscreen combines the quality and durability of the Mimo Vue display with TanvasTouch surface haptics, programmable textures and feelings on flat, physical surfaces.
Surface haptics are a step change in the evolution of haptics, bringing an entirely new dimension to touch surfaces. TanvasTouch technology is solid state and software-defined, making it possible to program textures, bumps, edges and collisions that can be felt with a swipe of the finger.

Leveraging the idea that most people are already familiar with how to engage with small interactive touchscreens, the Mimo Vue with TanvasTouch pushes the boundaries for how touch can be utilized, while creating an experience that’s approachable, intuitive, and novel.
“Sight and sound are often at the forefront, but touch is incredibly powerful for cultivating connection, creating immersion, or for building long-term brand affinity and recognition,” said David Anderson, President and CEO of Mimo Monitors. “With more noise than ever competing for customer’s attention, engagement, and mindshare, providing a rich touch experience is an impactful way to cut through the clutter.”
This new technology is completely programmable and customizable. It has a wide variety of applications including retail, museums, conference rooms, automotive, accessibility and much more. Several digital signage and software leaders have already begun integrating TanvasTouch technology into their software products including BrightSign, Intuiface and KioWare®.
“Taking surface haptics from the lab to its first commercial product is a big step toward our vision to make touchscreens infinitely more touchable,“ said Ed Colgate, Co-Founder of Tanvas. “The Mimo Vue with TanvasTouch gives integrators a new canvas on which to design multisensory experiences. We look forward to seeing a creative revolution take hold.”The Mimo Vue with TanvasTouch will be discussed on June 11, 2019 at the TIDE Conference in a panel titled, The Science and Creativity of Surface Haptics.
The product will be on display in Mimo Monitors’ Booth at InfoComm 2019 (#542). To make an appointment and experience the future of touch, visit: https://www.mimomonitors.com/pages/infocomm#form
