The Platform 46 Multitouch Table and Platform 46 Multitouch Coffee Table will start shipping in July. (You can pre-order yours here.) These advanced touch tables are the first to integrate 46″ 3M High-Performance Multitouch Displays. They use projected capacitive touch technology (just like most smart phones and tablets). The displays are impervious to light interference and support up to 60 simultaneous touch points.
Gizmag and Geek.com both ran stories on the new tables and we got a mention in ComputerWorld. (The ComputerWorld story talks about how Microsoft could “rule consumer electronics” if they released a table like the Platform 46 Multitouch Coffee Table.)
Both tables were announced at InfoComm 2013 in Orlando, Florida earlier in the month and were featured in the 3M booth. InAVate TV interviewed Dave Henry of 3M as he showed off the Platform 46 Multitouch Coffee Table.
3M also showed off some new GestureWorks-built multitouch software. Look for coverage on that and other new software developments in an upcoming blog post.
