I _Really_ Don't Know

20 foot multi-touch screen

I haven't posted anything on multitouch stuff for a while, mainly because I haven't seen anything that's really that new or exciting - I haven't been looking too hard either, so feel free to correct me in the comments.

Today, though, Mike tweeted a link to a video of NUI Group building a 20' multi-touch screen for an event in dubai.

LucidTouch is a prototype of a see-through multitouch system, from Mitsubishi Electronic Research Lab. Fingers on the back of the screen allow multitouch without occluding the screen: http://www.merl.com/projects/lucidtouch/. Also show in this youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aASuL7RHJHM

Hey Jodi, thanks for the link, I hadn't seen g-speak before. That's a very slick demo they have. rob

It's not multitouch, but another interface set-up to watch is g-speak, Oblong's gestural gui. Flowing Data has some a nice summary: http://flowingdata.com/2008/11/17/minority-report-physical-interface-in-real-life-oblong-g-speak/
