hey Seth, thanks for reminding me this older post.
I agree it’s too soon to say whether it’s fake or not. I can estimate how they can make the table as big as thin like that.
But I just can’t imagine why the news say the table supports multiperson. If that’s real, then we don’t need to talk about overlay, projector in this forum any more.
Am I right?
While from the video, it sounds like they are in an East European country, I’m not sure which vendor there has such capability, and before this video I always believe most advanced and mature multi-touch products are still in USA.
I think it’s too soon to say whether it’s fake or not because 1) It’s completely possible to do it (just check out all the computer/mouse -> iphone/ipad videos out there), 2) Capacitive screens that big are available (keep in mind they only showed 2 touch), and 3) There’s definitely a market for being able to port all the apps on the appstore to multiuser/big screens without actually having to do anything.
Whether it’s fake or not, I wouldn’t doubt you’ll see something real come out of this from someone in the near future. The market for it is there, and it’s completely possible.
