US – Zytronic elevates user interaction with design innovation at this year’s G2E

By - 27 September 2023

In the ever-evolving world of technology, Zytronic again takes centre stage at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) 2023, unveiling a range of cutting-edge features that are set to redefine user interaction and design aesthetics in the gaming industry.

During the show, Zytronic (stand: 1335) will showcase its floating button technologies on a true round high-brightness LCD interactive table demo unit and two button decks, each with an interactive stretched display.

Zytronic’s 23.6-inch true round high-brightness LCD interactive table demo unit is more than just a piece of technology. The uniquely shaped multitouch sensor glass surface is fully customisable. This design is shaped to incorporate four independent player areas, each with its own transparent floating and invisibility-powered mechanical bash button.

“Beyond gaming, the true potential of this interactive table shines through with its on-screen application,” says Dr Andrew Morrison, Technical Director, Zytronic. “The round interactive display and bash buttons aren’t just for gaming; they can also be used to browse and order beverages via on-screen menus.” This multifunctionality ensures that the table serves as a versatile and practical solution on the casino floor. To add an extra layer of sophistication and ambience, this interactive table features an illuminated base, providing an inviting and captivating visual experience.

The first button deck demo unit features a 19.4-inch high-brightness stretched display with a full multitouch-enabled sensor interface. Its transparent glass surround truly sets this unit apart, which creates a unique and never-before-seen floating button deck.

The fully transparent and touch-interactive raised glass bash button, accompanied by a perimeter joggle wheel, is visually striking and engineered for durability. Its laminated raised structure has no moving parts to create a fully sealed interactive button and joggle wheel with no wear-out mechanism that is fully resistant to liquid spillages.

The showcase unit with polished edge glass boasts an illuminated perimeter LED array, which creates an ambient halo glow around the button deck perimeter. Zytronic’s forward-thinking approach extends to user convenience with a floating inductive phone charging area.

On Zytronic’s second button deck demo unit, the 19.4-inch stretched display boasts a full multitouch-enabled sensor interface with a unique hexagon fade graphic print surround, adding sophistication to the design. What sets this button deck apart is the floating mechanical bash button mounted directly within the active area of the display and touchscreen while still maintaining full touch capability around the floating button.

The bash button can operate fully independently of the touch sensor and has an incorporated and addressable RGB halo LED ring. As Dr Andrew Morrison explains: “It’s not a mere stick-on button but a transparently powered and fully data-addressable mechanically fitted button component. This means the button’s operation can be tracked and logged separately, offering new user engagement and data collection possibilities.”

Flexibility is key with this button deck – the design is fully customisable, allowing for the placement of multiple bash buttons within or outside the display and touch active area. This adaptability ensures that the display can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the gaming industry.

Zytronic will also show a diverse array of processed glass and sensor designs. These designs showcase the company’s depth of expertise and in-house capabilities in touch-sensing technology and custom glass designs. Custom glass printing allows for intricate patterns, graphics, and branding, making it an excellent choice for the gaming industry, which prioritises visual aesthetics. Zytronic’s ingenuity shines through in its glass surface carving capabilities to create tactile joggle-wheel buttons and sliders that offer users a tactile and responsive touch experience.

Zytronic’s showcase is a glimpse into the future of interactive displays, where touch and design seamlessly merge to create user experiences that are visually captivating and highly engaging. Zytronic’s dedication to innovation ensures that the world of touch sensing and custom glass designs will continue to evolve, opening doors to new possibilities across the gaming sector.
