One of the most interesting and unique technologies we saw at Eureka Park at CES came from Displair. This company is the inventor of the first interactive airborne display, by the same name, complete with multi-touch support. This is perfect for anybody doing advertising, promotional campaigns or anything else that needs the “cool” factor. The best thing about Displair is that the image stays totally penetrable for physical objects. For example, we got to see a demo of Fruit Ninja and were able to slash those fruits into oblivion by slicing through the screen. This is a really great product that you’ve just got to see to get it.
The MultiTouch company has launched a new multitouch platform for large-scale LCDs. These are multiuser and multitouch LCDs ranging from 32 to 100 inches.
The unit in this video consists of three 46 inch LCDs, stacked together. The video shows a demo of photos and videos floating around the LCDs that allow user interaction. You can drag and resize the objects and even play, stop, and rewind the video objects. All three LCDs were controlled by a single PC.
Typical uses for this interactive display technology is in retail shops, lobbies, museums, and many other places where user interaction is needed.
