Projected MultiTouch Screen

April 20, 2010

This interactive projector transforms any flat surface into a multitouch screen. When a person’s fingers touch the display, infrared sensors detect the motion and allow the same kinds of interactions that are possible on, say, an iPhone. The product is initially being made available to industrial partners for commercial applications such as interactive displays in retail or educational settings.

Product: Light Touch
Cost: Not available
Availability: Now to industrial partners; first products from partners to reach market in late 2010
