While we were all standing around the Tablet PC meetup in Vegas, we got to see the new Origami Experience for Windows Vista. We were also given a copy of the program to try out, and of course I had to ask if we could do an InkShow on it… as you can see, the answer was Yes!! This is a total overhaul of the Touch Pack that was installed on Windows XP UMPC’s. The old Touch Pack was primarily just a launcher to start other programs. The Origami Experience is much more of a program itself as you will see in the video – though it still has the launcher part in there as well.
In this InkShow, I run through some of the basic functionality to provide a general overview of what the new Origami Experience is all about. I feel that this is going to be used much more on my device than the Touch Pack. This version will only run on Windows Vista and from what I understand will be available for download for all of you that get an ‘upgrade’ in the mail. Hats off to the Origami team for their work!
UPDATE – I have an e-mail out to find out when the Origami Experience will be released for download – I will update the post again when I find out.
UPDATE 2 – Look for it on Jan 30th when Vista is released!
