Device offers improved PC with GTX 285 graphics
Ideum has introduced the MT-50 multi-touch table, an updated version of the earlier MT2 model. The table offers an improved PC system, with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 285 graphics card. To enhance the experience for multiple users, especially locations such as musems, the company has expanded the input support to 60 simultaneous control points.
The 50-inch haptic glass is coated underneath with a projection material illuminated by a 1280x720 DLP projector. Ideum demonstrates the durability of the tempered glass by dropping a 12-pound bowling ball from a height of two feet.
Ideum works with customers to develop custom exhibits, or other specialized interfaces, using technology such as Flash and GestureWorks. Pricing and availability information can be obtained by contacting the company. [via Engadget]
