City Wall [via John Evans] was designed and developed by UIx so that several people can interact directly with display at the same time; the maximum number of people who can interact is limited only by physical space. The current City Wall installation measures 2.6 meters wide but the technology would allow displays that are theoretically 16 meters wide. This installation uses an very promising Near IR technique, similar to TouchLight methods. I really enjoyed the intuitive pen notion and keyboard toggle. Join the discussion here.

The above video demonstrate how Smartretina can be used as a navigating tool combined with Google earth. SmartRetina (working on the black laptop on the right) captures the user’s hand gestures, understanding them as computer actions such as up, down, left, right, Zoom In etc, then sends the commands to a computer running Google earth (the desktop on the left).
