MultiTouch displays get Android support4 January 2012
An Android support suite for multi-user multi-touch displays has been introduced by MultiTouch, developer of the world’s first modular multi-touch LCD screen for large-scale displays.
The support suite is designed for the company’s MultiTaction platform, and provides developers with an elegant, open means of porting and developing Android applications for MultiTouch’s range of displays, says the company.
It means that the new MultiTouch MultiTaction Cell 55in display can be used as a huge Android tablet, providing greater interactivity, social media integration, and augmented reality hooks on a grand scale. The software suite will be available within weeks.
“By working with the world’s leading interactive developers, we have carefully listened to our customers and developed technology that can be used by what we know will be a large community of multi-touch software developers committed to touching the future,” said Petri Martikainen, CEO of MultiTouch.
