Ultra-thin transparent flexible sensors on winning selfie stick

Royole Corporation, founded by Stanford engineering graduates in 2012, is a manufacturer of next-generation human-machine interface technologies and products such as advanced flexible displays, flexible sensors, and smart devices, announces that it has been named a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for its Selfie Stick, among other Royole products such as the 4G LTE Moon.
The Royole Selfie Stick is based on the company's unique ultra-thin transparent flexible sensors. Instead of physical buttons found on traditional selfie sticks, multi-function flexible sensors wrap around the device handle and allow users to easily control all camera functions such as: focus, filter selection, front and rear camera selection, recording, shutter, and more. All functions can be customized to the user's preferences, making 'self-photography' much more fun and convenient. Its elegant leather design is inspired by Chanel's classic diamond-shaped lattice bag - fashionable and full of personality, while also being light and easy to carry. The Selfie Stick comes in 5 colors.
"We are elated to be recognized as a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for our Selfie Stick," said Dr. Bill Liu, Founder and CEO of Royole. "It is a great example of how a product using our flexible electronics can improve the way people interact with their world, and it is very gratifying to be recognized by CTA for all of our teams' hard work."
Entries for the award are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value, unique/novel features present and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace.
Royole technology milestones include the world's thinnest full-color AMOLED flexible display and flexible sensors (2014), the world's first foldable 3D mobile theater (2015), and the world's first curved car dashboard based on flexible electronics (2016).
