We have all seen many types of futuristic touch screen interfaces projected on walls and other thing in sci-fi movies. In the ongoing CES 2010, a little known company called Light Blue Optics has unvieled a device which takes us one step closer to such a device.
The device that LBO unvieled is called Light Touch. The device is basically an interactive projector. It can transform any flat surface into a touch screen interface. The device uses full-color holographic technology to display the interface on any flat surface. The inputs are sensed through an infrared sensing technology.
This device has been named a CES Innovations Honoree in the Media Player and Personal Electronics categories in CES 2010.
Some other details of the device are:
- The operating system it runs on is Microsoft’s Windows CE.
