Wall supports as many people as can fit in front of it

Twitter is one of the most commonly used social networking tools for lots of people all around the world. Apps for Twitter are offered on just about every smartphone out there. MultiTouch LTD has announced that it has developed the first Multitouch Twitter wall and will be showing the device off at CES 2011.

The gigantic Twitter wall is made up of at least six Multitouch Cell 46 Advanced displays each measuring 46-inches wide. The big screens will be arranged in a 3' x 2' configuration that displays Tweets based on selected hashtags and keywords.

Each of the tweets displayed can be opened by touching them on a sphere on the screen and then the content of the tweet like images and video can be viewed along with profile pics of the person doing the tweeting. The screen also uses Panphonics sound shower speakers for directional audio so the users can hear the sound associated with content and posts. The giant multitouch screen will support as many users as can be fitted in front of the video wall.

“We have created the first large-scale display application for Twitter, which is ideal for a public multitouch, multi-user display system,” said Petri Martikainen, CEO of MultiTouch Ltd. “Social media and user-generated content are as much a part of the multitouch display experience as archival content, and the MultiTouch Twitter Wall enables greater access to the curated real-time media stream, in a tactile and enlightening way.”

The screens in the video wall support HD applications and can be used for augmented reality. They can display 100 frames per second in bright daylight or dark environments and support unlimited touch points with hands, fingers, and 2D markers.
