Microsoft’s OmniTouch Project Will Make Any Surface Interactive

Microsoft showed off its new Touch Sensitive Technology last week. What we going to discuss here is its new project with Carnegie Mellon University, which is soon to be the future.

The new project dubbed OmniTouch has the capability of turning any surface into a touchscreen. This has been made possible with a shoulder-mounted device that is equally pico-projector and Kinect.

With this technology, you need not to have a tablet PC, all you need to have is just a paper tablet. You will certainly be amazed to see how this works. For instance, you need to use your hand to run apps, just hold it out and you will have proper buttons to navigate around.

I must sure that you will be amazed to see how it works. If you want to check an email, just go near the wall to project a display. You can even finger paint the wall, considering your hand a palette. With OmniTouch, you can even use your hand as an interim interface, especially when you need to project display on the desk or table.

In last decade or two, technology has developed manifolds. Once there was no concept of wireless telecommunication and now we have modern and advanced telecommunication system with loads of mobile phones with latest technologies. OmniTouch is one such example. Some of you might like the idea of having a small shoulder-mounted device which is less projected. The way technology is progressing, we can expect to have one that can win our hearts. OmniTouch is also not a bad deal either at the moment.

Just sit back, enjoy what you have and expect something even better in the coming days. Expect to have something more advanced and better in the future.
