GestureTek Showcases Multi-Touch / Multi-Point Interactive Display Innovations for Science and Technology Centers at ASTC Show

Oct 16 2008


NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center The Most Recent Attraction To Install GestureTek’s Multi-Touch Table.

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania – GestureTek Inc., the world leader and patent-holder in camera-enabled gesture control user interfaces for interactive displays, today announced it will showcase its latest innovations in touch-free ‘edutainment’ for Science Centers on October 18 and 19th in Booth 254 at the ASTC Show at the Pennsylvania Convention Centre.

Among the featured interactive display products is GestureTek’s award-winning Illuminate Multi-Touch surface computing table, most recently installed for NASA’s Marshall Space Center as part of a traveling interactive attraction.

Collaborative multi-touch game draws crowds for NASA

[Nasa Multi-Touch Table Game ]

For a NASA mobile exhibit, GestureTek and Los Angeles-based interactive agency Inhance Digital Corporation provided a multi-user game that teaches players about one of the exciting Lunar Outpost projects being developed at NASA.  The multi-touch table game has four separate starting points, to accommodate multiple users.  In each section, viewers have access to different parts of the Lunar Outpost, which they can rotate or zoom into to get more information.  Each user has the ability to drag and drop a piece of the station into the center of the table.  Together, multiple users assemble their pieces to collaboratively build the Lunar Outpost.  After the users have worked together to build the Outpost, a short informative video plays that gives them more insight into the work being done at NASA. 

“By integrating GestureTek’s multi-touch technology into NASA’s mobile experience, we’ve opened up a world of possibilities for innovative and highly engaging multi-player, multi-user and collaborative interactive experiences.  The sky really is the limit,” said Maziar Farzam, President, Inhance Digital Corporation. 

GestureTek’s popular multi-touch technology has been deployed on a variety of interactive surfaces over the past three years, including interactive tables, windows, screens, digital signs and countertops for tourist attractions, museums, science centers and other organizations that are committed to staying on the leading edge of technology.

“GestureTek is unmatched in the flexibility, robustness and reliability of its multi-touch platform,” said Vincent John Vincent, President and Co-Founder of GestureTek. 

For example, with GestureTek’s multi-touch display solution, users can either touch the screen or point their fingers immediately above the surface in order to initiate commands.  By making simple rotating and dragging gestures, the user can control dynamic multi-media content, access product information, play games, create special effects, manipulate images or view advertising.  GestureTek’s full library of over 70 eye-catching special effects and visual applications can be made available as part of the multi-touch solution.  GestureTek’s multi-touch solutions can be enhanced with object recognition, blue tooth or other additional interfaces, where appropriate.
