MultiTouch has stepped forward to introduce what they deem to be the first fully integrated Windows 8 interactive displays in the world, coming in 42” and 55” sizes. Called the MultiTaction Cell multitouch displays, they come fully integrated with the Windows 8 environment. If you want to be more specific, you can refer to them as the MultiTaction Cell 42” (MT420W8) and 55” (MT550W8), and regardless of which model you decide to bring home, they will run on the Intel Core i7 processor, delivering support for simultaneous use of unlimited touch with hands, in addition to native pen tracking and real life object interaction which can only be made possible via Windows 8.
Needless to say, these displays will come in handy for use in public spaces, since clients can also make use of the applications from the Windows 8 store, not to mention having a go at Angry Birds as a breather since both 42” and 55” models can run applications that are compatible across smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop PCs. There is no word on pricing as at press time.
