The operator can also use the fingers on the reverse screen for its operation simultaneously. The technology of the Grippity consists of various layers in the LCD screen. These layers get light from the backlight. There are two diffusers in layers of tablet. Its like layer behind the mirror.  The picture on the screen is bright due to the mirror. The designers have removed the layer of the diffuser. Thus,  25% of the screen has become transparent. The second screen has been added to this prototype.
