The latest Multitouch table from Ideum looks like quite a beauty. It offers a large 55-inch diagonal HD touchscreen, and has everything built in to drive fully custom multitouch applications. The MT55 HD has an LED-backlit 1080p display, and can detect 32 points of touch at the same time, so multiple people can interact with it simultaneously.
Under the hood there’s an integrated HP computer, powered by a 2.93GHz quad-core i7 CPU, and an nVidia Quadro 600 workstation-class video 3D card. The system also has WiFi and Bluetooth in addition to Ethernet for connectivity. It’s also got a built-in Bose sound system and the ability to mirror output via HDMI. The system runs Windows 7 Pro 64-bit edition, and comes pre-loaded with GestureWorks software for quickly building multitouch applications and integrating with Flash and Flex.
It’s designed for use in galleries, museums, art installations and educational installations, so it’s made out of durable aluminum and steel, with a hardened, tempered glass top. It even has a battery backup and cooling unit built into the tower, so the system is definitely a turnkey way of building out a custom multitouch experience.
