Ubi Interactive has moved one step forward toward achieving visuals seen in science- fiction movies for years.
Ubi with assistance from Microsoft has created technology that will turn any surface into a touchscreen interface for your computer.
The system works with a regular projector from a computer in tandem with Microsoft’s Kinect sensor that has been popularized by its Xbox game system.
As reported by theverge.com:
“Ubi Interactive worked closely with Microsoft to create a system that uses a projector in combination with a Kinect sensor to create a virtual touchscreen that can be cast onto any surface. As many businesses already have projectors installed, most will simply be able to buy a Kinect for Windows sensor and Ubi’s $149 software to turn a projector into a touch-capable unit.”
The primary customers for this device will initially be business owners of course, as they already have projectors in their boardrooms and can use a tool like this to enhance presentations.
However, with technology like this the applications are as endless. Geek wire.com reports:
“Other potential scenarios cited by the company include stores projecting screens onto their windows for customers to interact with, even after-hours.
