Showing off with a 22 megapixel interactive display

Here at Amnesia we come across great things all the time and if we would have the time we would probably write more and more posts about it for you to read.

So over the past few years I have been looking into interactive displays and we have collected quite a large collection of different ways on what is out there and what we can offer to our clients. but I don’t want to bore you with those as yesterday I came across this little project from Norway.

Students from the university of Tromsø developed an interactive wall, constructed from 28 projectors and driven by a display cluster of about 30 computers, each projector creates a 1024×768 resolution image, which when tiled together with the others form a 7168×3072 resolution display.

The cool thing is that it supports multi-touch, but you have to be careful using that term as you don’t actually touch the wall to interact with it. cameras on the floor determine the position of your hand and the movement and make things happen.

Another thing that is very interesting is that this wall is already 5-6 years old and it is using technology that only now seems to be coming into the markets.
