Two years ago, you blew your nose, looked up and everyone and their grandma’s elbow was using a device fit with a multi-touch screen and fifty finger-enabled apps. There’s not much that makes multi-touch newsworthy these days, but FlatFrog is going beyond resolution and screen size updates with a pressure detecting technology that makes the…

There’s no end to the electrical implements of the future you can strap to your shoulder blade – laser canons, jet packs, robot cats with laser eyes – but what if you could project a multi-touch panel on any surface (wait, didn’t we see this before and before and before?) No one has probably thought…

There’s a multi-touch rash starting to spread across the butt-checks of CAD that no penetrating ointment will cure. So, when SolidWorks demonstrated their future platform independent MCAD platform it was no surprise to see some multi-touch features thrown into the mix. However, what’s supremely interesting is not the multi-touch, but the device being multi-touched. It’s…

After seeing the snazzy video showing future multi-touch support for SpaceClaim, I went on the hunt to find out a little bit more. Fortunately, I had the email of Blake Courter, Co-founder of SpaceClaim. Great chap, hung out with him at SolidWorks World 2009, of all places. He answered some questions about MT capabilities, gives…

Finally, I mean FINALLY were seeing some development come out with those fancy Microsoft Surface multi-touch displays and BMW is the company making it cool to have multiple appendages. The ‘BMW Product Navigator’ allows those in the mood for a BMW to select options, colors, see video of their configurations and save it to USB…

Wow, 3D and multi-touch. Who woulda thought of that. It’s like putting peanut butter on bread. What’s interesting about this is that it’s being used in public to get some collaboration going on with residents in Helsinki. CityWall is a large multi-touch display… which acts as a collaborative and playful interface for the everchanging media…

I see you wavin’ your hands around like your folding laundry, but that imagery floating around you is just all kinds of freaky… OHhhh, those are holograms and your moving them around with your knuckles and those sensors in your hands. I shoulda known. It’s here. Obscura Digital is using their multi-touch technology along with…

I first saw Jeff Han’s mutitouch screen on the TED website. Since then I’ve been keeping an eye out for what that guy is doing. I came across another video of him demo’ing the touchscreen. It looks like they’ve added some functionality since the previous demo. Imagining this in the context of 3D CAD usibility…

Of the mobile workstations currently available, the ones I could strap to my back and go on a 5-mile run number at four. There’s only one that wouldn’t leave me wheezing like a grandpa badger with a collapsed lung. That’s the Lenovo ThinkPad W550s. It’s a 15″ lappy with an optional touchscreen, pro features, portability,…

Don your favorite bath robe, cream that coffee and get comfortable with this weekend’s SolidSmack Weekend Reader. This week we saw everything from how Japanese Kokeshi dolls are made to a new line of Steve McQueen-inspired futuristic motorcycles and…you can use SolidWorks to simulate a zombie attack? So lay back, relax and take a load…

Hark! 2013 is upon us! In many ways, the previous year seemed a turning point for where we’re going while simultaneously lacking any sort of drastic, earth-shattering changes. However, there’s plenty of fat, tech-laden fodder on which to speculate for 2013 and that’s exactly what we’re going to dish out for you folks. In recent…
