Interactive Displays

MultiTouch interactive displays are the latest technological evolution of touch-sensitive screens. While single point of contact touch screens are commonplace, MultiTouch is the latest attempt to improve the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Instead of using peripheral devices, such a mouse, keyboard, or stylus, users can interface with their computer with the touch of their fingers, allowing for multiple inputs at the same time. The movement of the fingers across the screen create various gestures, sending commands to the device. Such sensing devices are inherently also able to accommodate multiple users simultaneously, which is especially useful for larger interaction scenarios such as interactive video walls and tabletops.
