Amazon buys Touchco: a screen manufacturer

Iti s reported that Amazon has bought Touchco; a start-up, based in new York that is developing a new sort of plastic touchscreen.


Quote:
Touchco was established by a group of computer scientists from the New York University’s Media Research Lab to design cost-effective, power-efficient multitouch displays with an innovative technology named interpolating force-sensitive resistance (IFSR).

The screens can be employed on a slew of devices

Well, it looks as though they are planning a touchscreen reader. Sony already has one. Thr iPad is touchscreen too.

Here's some more coverage:

Perhaps Amazon is trying to compete with the iPad and include apps?
