Interactive capabilities using technologies such as 3D sensing and gesture recognition are essential parts of the next wave in product interfaces. Increasingly, touch-, voice-, and gesture-based interactions are replacing buttons, keyboards, and computer mice. Eye-tracking capabilities are already deployed, and it is just a matter of time before they appear in mass-market, high-volume products. Jabil is an expert at designing, developing, and manufacturing these kinds of interactive solutions and we integrate them into a variety of applications.
Interactive sensing components and other electronic elements typically mount in a wide variety of materials such as glass, textiles, plastics, and ceramics. They require custom, innovative design and precision manufacturing using advanced techniques such as active alignment. And in this type of market, the pressure to bring a product to market rapidly is enormous. The supply chain, from material management through shipping, must perform flawlessly to return profits from high-volume items selling at ever-falling prices.
