Microsoft Shows Off LaserTouch

Microsoft researchers are showing off their stuff at the 4th Research Road Show, and as a part of the fun, Andy Wilson showed off a new multi-touch system that is based on a low-cost infrared camera and lasers that are used to track how a user touches a screen. Supposedly this is an inexpensive system although no prices were put forward on the research project, which of course comes with the same caveat as the TouchWall. There are no immediate plans to make this into a product yet.



Rob and I got to meet with Andy Wilson on our recent trip to Redmond, when we talked about another of his projects, Microsoft Surface.
