Microsoft researchers have unveiled Omnitouch, a clever way to turn any surface area into a navigatable touchscreen.

In a joint project with Carnegie Mellon University, Microsoft reveals that the technology works in a similar way to Kinect, but is “modified to work at short range†to track finger movements.

I'm going to go postal if microsoft forces Games for windows live down our throats in windows 8. GFWL has sucked for 3 years and will never stop sucking.

More like you still stand correct for a phone by itself to have this capability... for now. The current system is a kinnect type system over the shoulder.

Yet another application for Kinect technolgy. And yay CMU!
post #7 of 11
Pretty sure I saw this technology at a TED conference about 1-2 years ago, albeit without Kinect behind it. S'pretty cool, nonetheless.

This would be pretty usefull as an input device for everyone who doesn't own touch screen monitors. I can't see people wearing cameras and projectors around but put this thing in my office next to my computer projecting on my desk and I will use it.

I laughed so hard that i peed a bit when i saw the size of the "Shoulder" mounted device, which is held in place by a brace that is wrapped around the chest/back

Still, cool technology/idea wonder how long it will be before its small enough to be useful
