  • Publication number: 20200147514
    Abstract: An atmospheric water generator for extracting water droplets from ambient air includes an insulating substrate, a plurality of electrode film units, and a liquid crystal/polymer composite film. Each of surface regions of the liquid crystal/polymer composite film has a plurality of liquid crystal molecules each having a hydrophilic functional group and a hydrophobic moiety. Each of the surface regions normally has one of hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties. When a voltage is applied to one of the electrode film units, the respective surface region is switched to have the other one of hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties, to thereby allow the water droplets condensed from the ambient air to move on the surface regions.

  • Publication number: 20200133428
    Abstract: A touch device has multiple charging traces distributed under the touch operation area. When the object hovers over or contacts the touch operation area, the control unit of the touch device obtains the corresponding position of the object through the sensing signal of the electrode units. The control unit in turn connect the charging traces adjacent to the corresponding position of the object to form at least one charging loop. In the process of the touch operation on the touch device, the object can be charged at the same time, and the convenience of use can be improved.

  • Publication number: 20200133436
    Abstract: A touch system has a touch device and an input device. The touch system executes a first mode and a second mode at different times. In the first mode, the touch device transmits a modulation signal to drive the touch electrodes and to be used as an uplink signal. The input device receives the modulation signal. In the second mode, the touch device receives the downlink signal from the input device. Thus, the touch device does not have to transmit the driving signal and the uplink signal at different times. Then the time is saved for the rest work periods so that every work periods get longer length of time.
