GestureTek, Inventor of Surface Computing Solutions, Pushes Boundaries of Multi-touch Tables

Jun 19 2007


Latest Installation At Australia's Tallest Building Marks the World's Largest Multi-touch Surface Computing Table

SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- GestureTek, the world leader and leading patent holder in interactive gesture-controlled displays and surface computing solutions, today announced a series of installations of both standard and custom versions of its surface computing tables, including the world's largest multi-touch surface computing table at Australia's newly opened tallest building, the 556-unit residential Eureka Tower in Melbourne. The 18' X 5' table enables multiple users to simultaneously explore interactive content that informs them of key highlights of this unique building and the surrounding community, simply by pointing to the appropriate icons on the massive display. See it [here].

As the inventor, pioneer and patent holder of video camera interfaces for multi-touch, multi-user and surface computing solutions since the late 1980s, GestureTek has played a leading role in deploying these types of experiences around the world.

GestureTek now offers a state-of-the-art Illuminate Table that is a turnkey, user-friendly, multi-touch surface computing table standing 32" high with a 50" gesture-controlled screen as well as a powerful computer, a projector, an IR camera and speakers inside. It is suitable for installations in corporate board rooms, showrooms, military facilities, cafes, nightclub, restaurants, hotels, retail locations, location-based entertainment facilities, tradeshows, and other public venues where kiosk-style multimedia is desired. See it [here]

In addition, GestureTek has delivered an array of custom-built tables for multiple vertical markets. For example, the company created a 12' x 4' table featuring a dynamic way-finding interactive map of Manhattan's highlights for Samsung's Retail Showroom in the Time Warner building in New York City. (See http://www.gesturetek.com/gestpoint/businesscases/samsung.php ) The company also created a 4' x 4' multi-user surface computing table for the Charlestown Landing Museum, which features a Virtual Archaeological Dig allowing multiple participants to independently dig down through layers of virtual soil to find artifacts dating back to the Colonial America time period. See it [here].

GestureTek has also created multiple variations of surface computing tables for users to explore a variety of interactive environments at restaurants and bars, and has even turned the entire 16' length of the top of a bar counter into a multi-touch experience with an array of special effects.

GestureTek's surface computing tables are used to allow participants to peruse multimedia, play games, play with special effects, and draw and manipulate art and photographs. They are also employed as an interactive branding medium for advertisers.

"As the inventors of video gesture-controlled computing, GestureTek continues to lead the way in delivering interactive experiences that simplify our daily computing-related activities," said Bill Leckonby, CEO of GestureTek. "Our surface computing solutions have sparked the imagination of users and the computing industry alike."

GestureTek will be exhibiting at the InfoComm show in Anaheim, CA, from June 19-21. The company will display examples of its Minority Report-style point and control technology (GestPoint Systems), the turnkey Illuminate Table, and other surface computing technologies in booth #6846.
