The trick is in how WindowAgent's hardware is installed. The first and most crucial step is to apply a state-of-the-art touchfoil to the glass. This foil can be a standard size, or custom-made to fit whatever size display our client needs. It also can be configured to allow 2 or more points of interaction on the screen.

Once someone begins to touch where the foil is applied, hundreds of sensors will pick up the customer's finger tip using capacitive feedback. This means that the foil can know exactly where a customer is pointing due to the small electrical signal emitted by the human body. By configuring the touchfoil, our clients can even adjust how it picks up input based on how customers will be looking at the unit.

A majority of touch products require direct physical contact to work correctly, but WindowAgent's in-window displays can function through the glass instead. This means that every bit of the sensitive technology is safely inside the building, kept away from would-be vandals, and still providing the unique experience customers want.

Next, the monitor and compact-PC running the software are mounted into the window at the same height and orientation as the touchfoil. This ensures that when a customer touches a point on the screen, that point also lines up with the touchfoil. The monitor is kept slightly away from the touchfoil, so that its own electrical field does not interfere with the customer's input.

Finally, a window wrap is installed around the touch area on the outside of the window. By customizing it to the exact needs of the client, each wrap broadcasts loud and clear that the window is ready for use. This can help grab the attention of passerby who can then immediately start browsing through properties.
