With a 86" viewable haptic touch screen with 2304x800 pixel resolution, this superwide multi-touch table was designed for the Space Chase Gallery at the Adventure Science Center in Nashville for visitor use; the setup is powered by dual Intel I7s with 6GB of triple channel DDR RAM, allowing several people to manipulate virtual objects all at the same time. Although meant for museum use, the MT-50 hints strongly at the move toward touch screen integration into table design, undoubtedly will make its way into home furnishing and entertainment setups...

"Taking advantage of the super-wide screen format, we've created a digital representation of the EM Spectrum from radio waves to gamma rays." said Jim Spadaccini, Creative Director of Ideum. "Visitors can move images across the table in real-time, revealing the images in each waveform and accessing information about what they are seeing."
