expands the user interface from the front screen to the sides and entire
back of the iPhone. Canopy's team is demonstrating the product to the
global technology community at International CES (News - Alert) here, January 7-10,
"Our new variable pressure technology provides developers and users
alike with multiple input methods they've never before experienced,"
said Andrew Kamin-Lyndgaard, Canopy cofounder and CEO. "It gives
interaction with apps an entirely new variable and dimension."
Pressure-Sensitive Sensor Technology
The new mobile device case, initially for the iPhone® 5/5S,
detects the level of pressure the user is applying with each touch and
uses that data to identify user intent and significantly enhance the

Engineering. "Beyond its application for games and productivity apps, it
truly is a life-changing technology that extends into the accessibility
market. Apple's (News - Alert) devices have had a profound impact on the visually
impaired, and the Sensus case enhances iOS with additional ways to
control zooming, navigation, and more." He added that Sensus developer
kits are now shipping to the company's large, growing community of
