MultiTouch launches Enriched Reality for Interactive Displays

MultiTouch Ltd, the world leader in interactive display systems, has announced its latest technology, Enriched Reality. With the new technology, MultiTouch's MultiTaction series of displays are able to detect every object that interacts or is placed on the system.

Enriched Reality is based on MultiTouch's proprietary Computer Vision Through Screen (CVTS) technology and uses 2D optical markers for real-life object detection to uniquely identify any object attached to a marker. In addition to this, Enriched Reality supports blob tracking which recognizes all basic geometric shapes including circles, triangles and rectangles.

"Enriched Reality underlines the uniqueness of MultiTouch's CVTS technology," says Petri Martikainen, CEO of MultiTouch. "The CVTS technology can detect everything from single touch points to unlimited number of users to simultaneous use of hands, IR pens and real-life objects. The support for Enriched Reality will accelerate the development of applications that combine real-life objects with digital content in classrooms, museums and retail."

MultiTouch will showcase Enriched Reality at CES 2013, Las Vegas, in central hall, booth #14246, and later this month at ISE, Amsterdam. Live demonstration at CES includes CAVI Radartable where users can compose music with real-life pieces that represent different instruments, musical effects and samples.

Enriched Reality is included with the MultiTaction series of displays as a standard feature. The developers can use MultiTouch's proprietary Cornerstone SDK, XML or TUIO interface to access the marker and blob information on the screens.

All I've ever wanted to do in my life, is "touch and rotate a meaningless picture while wearing a suit smiling vacuously at colleagues who still can't find the start button to switch off". Seriously, the PR team needs firing. Don't try to sell multi-touch without finding a useful application for it.

Not a full suit, it is the ever popular coat-and-jeans combo, becoming increasingly more common. I'll stick with traditional. Maybe if I am going out to eat at a nice restaurant will I wear my coat with jeans. Jim Bobs Steakhouse here I come.

More evidence that the world is run by marketing majors.

To their benefit though, they did put a hot chick in the middle.

That said, if it's under $500 I'm in.
