Developing Futuristic Multi-Touch / Multi-Screen Applications

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

11:00am to 1:30pm (CST)

Multi-Touch and Multi-Screen development is the next wave pushing us closer to what has only been possible in science fiction. This session introduces users to the world of Multi-Touch and Multi-Screen development by looking at not only the software behind this revolution, but the hardware required to run these innovative user interface experiences. We will explore handheld devices and beyond... think CSI walls 10'x6' and tables larger than the one in your Grandmother's dining room. Breaking the standard rules of what you can expect from technology; Multi-Touch and Multi-Screen is the future, and you need to be in the know. Accessing multiple screens while running a single application enables multiple user interaction from anywhere! Connecting the web, desktop, handhelds, and/or new user interface devices unseen by anyone. This session will address 1) What are some techniques to build Multi-Touch hardware? 2) What are some considerations when developing software for Multi-Touch / Multi-Screen applications? 3) Where are things going next?
