SMART Table: Multi-Touch for Kids

When we first started seeing inklings of Microsoft’s Surface and other mutli-touch interfaces I thought that one space we’d see this take off eventually would be in primary education. Turns out the folks behind SmartTech thought that as well and thus we have the SMART Table. SmartTech is well versed in gesture recognition with their whiteboard products. SMART Table doesn’t use Microsoft’s technology instead it uses their own Digitial Vision Touch (DVIT) system for capturing gestures. It will cost somewhere between $7000 and $8000 per installation and is due to launch tomorrow.

    Smarttech has a nice list of hardware – their software is still pretty basic — but leveraging the Edusim 3D virtual world software on the Smart table would be a match made in heaven!

    You can search Edusim on Google to find more info.
