NVIDIA CEO shows off new touchscreen-stylus technology
At Computex on Tuesday, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang displayed a new touchscreen technology that allows users to wield a simple capacitive stylus and write using different levels of pressure. A flat surface at the other end of the stylus allowed Huang to erase mistakes. Keep in mind that the pen employed by the executive was a non-digitizer stylus.

By using a capacitive touchscreen and a stylus that works on pressure, battery life should be saved. A high detection rate led to some nice looking graphics including curved lines that looked great on the experimental 7 inch tablet used for the demonstration. For this to work you need to employ the NVIDIA Tegra 4 and NVIDIA's DirectTouch platform. There was no word on which slabs will be employing this technology in the near future.

Actually snapdragon is better then tegra in everyway, such as power effeciency, more reliable and etc tegra 4 is probably better at raw power and mutitasking

Mr. Huang has a habit of making promises that doesn't live up to expectations.
