taptl invented a transparent touch-screen. Think of taptl’s technology as a giant transparent iPad. Anything you can do on a TV or computer monitor, you can do on a taptl unit. The technology connects via HDMI and USB, and can include custom features such as Bluetooth, wifi, cameras and speakers. When installed into a storefront, retailers can work with their vendors to advertise on the window (via sublease), sell items directly from the window (stores are never closed), and collect data from the window. This technology truly ushers windows into the internet of things era.
Our technology can be integrated into existing window space (or built into new construction) and function as an interactive window that can be used to sell items, advertise, collect data and more. The applications are truly endless. With our product, retailers can increase their sales per square foot without increasing their square footage, market their products better, and collect similar data on their brick and mortar spaces as on their website.
