GoTouch consists of a pen and a sensor that weigh just 2.5 ounces, so it can easily be carried around in a pocket or handbag. The sensor leverages cutting-edge infrared technology to trace the infrared light emitted from the pen tip as it moves across the screen. The sensor then transmits those inputs into your OS, PC, tablet or smartphone via Bluetooth, so whatever you scribe on the screen with the GoTouch pen not only shows up there, but also on any other devices that are invited to your session via mobile app. This allows colleagues, friends and audience members to engage with your notes and scribbles whether they are in the same room or an ocean away.
"GoTouch provides immediate visual feedback, giving people a new tool to express their ideas, visualize conversations, and get input from their audience," said Edward Lim of Anyractive. It's also lightweight, low-cost, and delivers an intuitive user experience, making it the ultimate collaboration tool for groups of any sizes, across any industry, working on any project. The possibilities for how to use GoTouch are endless."
Over the past year, GoTouch has undergone extensive testing in South Korea with corporations, schools, small businesses, and creative individuals, like fashion designers and architects, who are using GoTouch to enhance the way they create and collaborate. Earlier this year, Anyractive created a Kickstarter campaign to raise early support for GoTouch and raised $110,396—surpassing the $30,000 target by more than 300 percent. Unlike many crowdfunding projects, GoTouch is already prepared for mass production, so backers will not have to worry about waiting a year, or even two, after the promised delivery date to receive their devices.
One of the major advantages of using GoTouch is affordability. And what makes GoTouch so affordable is that it integrates with whatever system you currently have. For example, monitors, TV or projectors that are already at your office, classrooms or home, as well as whatever OS you already use on your PC, smartphones or tablet.
While other products coming to the market, like the Jamboard and Microsoft Surface Hub, can cost anywhere between $6,000 and $21,999, GoTouch retails at just $159, and is available for $99 through the Indiegogo campaign. The GoTouch pen and sensor are all you need to get up-and-running. The setup process is simple; Within minutes, users can write or draw on uploaded PDF files, videos and images, webpages in the browser, documents, presentations and more. GoTouch is compatible with Windows PC, Android, and iOS smartphones and tablets. Mac OS will be available soon.

Anyractive's mission is to build a more interactive world by providing dynamic touch technology that enables more visual, interactive, effective communication. The award-winning company was founded in 2012 by Edward Lim, who while working as a mobile developer, realized how difficult it was to communicate with people solely using words, especially when transmitting technical information. He founded Anyractive to solve these everyday problems at work or in educational settings by maximizing communication with new technology. Anyractive's first product, GoTouch, enhances displays by turning them into a touch screen. Anyractive is based in Seoul, South Korea and has 10 employees.
