3M European Gaming Deployment
Bright as a Button
“As both an operator and manufacturer we want to deliver the best user experience to our customers,” explained Boštjan Stopar, General Manager of Gold Club. “We looked hard at the alternatives and the most powerful advantage was the strength of MicroTouch. MicroTouch is very nice for the user, as it is so fast and intuitive.”
The 3M MicroTouch MCT System consists of an enhanced 3M MicroTouch Sensor SCT3256, a hybrid 3M MicroTouch Controller MX touch and haptic feedback electronics, and two or more touchscreen actuators, according to screen dimensions. This system provides haptic feedback effects for on-screen video buttons so users actually ‘feel’ like they are depressing mechanical buttons.
Haptic feedback effects are created when the user simultaneously sees a video button depress, hears an audio file of the mechanical ‘click’ and feels a vibration in the touch screen’s glass surface. The user instinctively interprets the combination of these three sensations as pressing a mechanical button, when in reality they are simply touching a solid glass surface.
Gold Club’s electronic roulette tables incorporate up to ten touch screens, all attached to a single main computer. The MCT System, with its 5.4ms minimum contact time and greater than 99% positional accuracy, ensures fast response to finger input on multi-player games like roulette. Touch screen materials ensure close to 91.5% light transmission for a crisp and vibrant display, and the robust 3M MicroTouch ClearTek surface coating provides optimal anti-glare properties. The scratch resistant top coat provides a smooth, easy glide touch surface.
