TouchWall consists of three infrared lasers that scan a surface. A camera notes when something breaks through the laser line and feeds that information back to the Plex software.

And also, Microsoft doesn’t have immediate plans to turn this into a product. Let’s hope that changes. Think of all those CSI labs that are just waiting to file those budget requests.
