Multitouch table iTable – just touch with your fingers!

On December 7 in Kiev salon of computer equipment Computer Fashion the presentation of multitouch table iTable took place.

The iTable device looks like a coffee table with a glass top panel. But the highlight of this table is the new technology developed by PQ Labs engineers.

Its essence is that the role of a touch panel is played by a special cover plate with infrared sensors along the perimeter. Such a panel can be easily installed on any TFT monitor, plasma panel or another screen. The infrared panel with a series of sensors distinguishes fingers’ position (points of interaction with the interface) on the monitor.

There can be from 2 to 32 such points. In such a way multitouch technology is realized. Connected via USB socket to a personal computer, the infrared panel interacts with the interface of any OS.

The official distributor of the American company PQLabs in Ukraine is Touch Me company.

In Kiev the representatives of Touch Me showed a 32” panel and a 42” table iTable. The latter was quite successfully operational under Windows 7 - from viewing photos to interactive games.

 

"Such panels are much cheaper than multi-touch screens. It will suffice to have a computer, an infrared PQ Labs panel and a monitor. And the rest is the matter of imagination. You can apply this development in any area: in a supermarket, in a hotel, in a bank, in a movie theater - wherever a person will scroll through catalogs, zoom images, choose goods intuitively, with his fingers", - said the representatives of Touch Me.
