Wacom is a name that is synonymous with touch interface devices as well as tablets, and their latest G8 multi-touch controller technology is said to be able to support the next Windows touch experience thanks to close collaboration between two companies in order to deliver intuitive computer input to the masses.
Just what does Wacom’s G8 controller bring to the table? For starters, there will be a wide range of features and benefits to OEM and ODM entities who want to include multi-touch capabilities for Windows-based PCs, where the G8 is able to provide manufacturers with state-of-the-art, cost-effective system options that will propel the PC industry forward. I for one, cannot wait to see just what other kinds of hardware that will be delivered down the road equipped with such technology.
According to Masahiko Yamada, President of Wacom Company Limited, “The popularity of touch-centric devices such as smartphones, tablets and even larger surface displays like all-in one desktops, suggests that touch, specifically multi-touch, is becoming the primary user interface. By working towards a common goal, Wacom and Microsoft are able to create a touch experience that is natural, responsive and intuitive. As a result, users will be able to expand their horizons with new levels of computer interaction.” [Press Release]
