Thank you for your feedback on our last Project: V topic! We have learned what you are most interested in from your comments, which inspired us to fine-tune crucial aspects and bring relevant exclusive insights. Through my camera, I’ll let you know everything about the touch function of the V 2021 on this topic.
Navigation and drawing
Sitting above the liquid crystal display (LCD), the touch panel senses finger and stylus input for directly interacting with the V 2021 Tablet using its screen. Behind the scenes, a key challenge for us was to make the touch panel and LCD fit each other to function in harmony. A significant step towards this goal was laser cutting the ‘feet’ of the LCD in preparation for the touch panel integration.

Our team traveled to the touch panel factory for a comprehensive overview of their expertise, as well as a tour of their manufacturing facility. We were guided through dozens of dust-free workshops during the visit while learning how the production lines integrate a touch panel from A to Z, including how the touch panel is mounted to the LCD.

The Pen has an exchangeable pen tip and a straightforward battery replacement process:
