Turn Your Windows 8 Computer Into a Touch Screen for Back to School

APEN Touch 8 Pen Gives Students Touch Capabilities to Make Schoolwork Easier

WEST COVINA, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 8, 2013) - E FUN, a consumer electronics designer and marketer of fun, easy-to-use lifestyle products, has the perfect device to turn students' Windows 8 computers into touchscreen devices -- the APEN Touch 8 pen. Using ultrasonic and infrared technologies, the Touch 8 gives students touch capabilities on their standard Windows 8 PC monitor or laptop, making both schoolwork and creative activities easier.

"The Windows 8 software is built for touch, but not every family can purchase a new touch screen computer," said Jason Liszewski, managing director and VP of sales for E FUN. "The APEN Touch 8 is an affordable solution that gives touch capabilities to students' computers for use in the classroom and at home. With the Touch 8 they can easily complete homework, then create a drawing or handwritten note to send to friends on email or social networks."

The APEN Touch 8 gives students the ability to open programs, folders, and files; search the Internet; access e-mails; play games; draw; sign digital documents; shift to background programs; close applications; and so much more with the flick of a pen.

The APEN Touch 8 comes with a cordless digital pen, detachable receiver, and a USB cable connection to the Windows 8 device. It offers plug-and-play simplicity; there are no drivers to download. A user simply needs to attach the receiver to the edge of the screen using the provided magnetic clip, and then connect the USB cable. Once the computer or laptop is turned on, they can start enjoying Windows 8 touchscreen capabilities with the Touch 8 pen.

Other features of the APEN Touch 8 are up to 17" coverage area, 500 hours of continuous writing/hovering battery life, and absolute positioning.

The APEN Touch 8 is available now at Newegg.com, HSN.com and BestBuy.com.
