HP has showed off its “wall of touch”, a massive contact-less touchscreen, to the Wall Street Journal in New York. The modular screen, that uses optical cameras and a magnetic strip to detect when users are nearing the wall, was originally developed following a request from the company’s public relations firm and is set to be rolled out in 2011. Read on for video content.
The wall can comprise up to nine 43”, 1.5” thick panels with a resolution of 1080p. It is driven by an H-P Z800 workstation and allows users to access cable feeds, satellite feeds, download and stream content from the web and view DVR and DVD content.The product will be available to customers in 2011 and but is set to cost any where between $2,000 to $100,000, according to the newspaper’s website. The report added that future systems were expected to incorporate additional features such as HD videoconferencing.

  1. Well, consumers will not need to wait for this device to have video conferencing. The new 3D televisions will also have a microphone, camera, and Wi-Fi connection for fast and easy videoconferencing. The implementation of 3D technology for these units would also be amazing, but would mean these individual screens would have to be conscious of additional screens around it (which actually doesn't sound that hard).
