This is a very interesting article that briefly explains what all the compnents look like. There is a a short video at the end showing the new technology and several things it can do. 

Hayley Regalado's curator insight, March 21, 2013 6:42 PM

This article discusses technology that can project a touch screen on any given surface. The technology is called 'OmniTouch' and is similar to the X-box Kinect technology. This technology is not going to be a major technology in future because it is close to being available now. The prototype for this product is complete and is currently undergoing tests. The advantage of OmniTouch technology is the ability to increase the size of projection. According to the article, OmniTouch has the capability of choosing optimised display settings for every new surface. The current issue with the prototype is the cumbersome size and shape. This problem is being addressed in future prototypes.

 

In my opinion this new technology can be perceived in two ways… Either it will seem intriguing to users but will decrease in popularity as technology enters an era predominantly surrounded by voice control and gesture control; or the technology will bring great success to mobile computing and portability. This article will contribute to my research into projected touch technologies such as the Ericson’s Company spider device.
