Ideum’s latest foray into the multitouch table platform comes in the form of the MT-55 Platform. Of course, this is not the first time Ideum has taken such a route, as they rolled out a rather massive 100″ MT-50 some time ago, but at least 55″ is a whole lot more functional and practical where the average high end consumer is concerned. Then again, I suppose if you can afford the 100″ model, your pad is probably large enough to house such a behemoth, so the $18,000 asking price for the MT-55 probably won’t make too large a dent in your pocket.
Measuring a mere 3″ thin – which is rather slim for a multitouch table, we must say, you get 55″ of touchscreen goodness with Full HD resolution support (1080p, baby!), a 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio, a 178-degree viewing angle as well as the ability to run the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Professional.
Underneath the hood, you probably won’t find anything that is too different from the average desktop computer – we’re looking at a dual-core Core i5 CPU running at 2.66GHz, a 128GB SSD (guess no hard drive inside is a good thing), up to 8GB of RAM, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and a bunch of ports. Made out of aircraft-grade aluminum, it ought to be able to last quite a fair bit of beating and abuse if you ever get frustrated at it for freezing up.
