Microsoft and Ubi's $149 Kinect App Turns any Surface into a Touch Screen

The power lies in your hands. Now by using the Kinect application by Microsoft and Ubi Interative, you may turn any surface into a touch screen at the drop of a hat. It is available for sale now at a starting price of $149.

Microsoft started its Kinect Accelerator System in 2012. The fruits are becoming more and more visible by now. Ubi Interactive got together with Microsoft to employ a projector in synch with a Kinect Sensor. The result was a touch screen that could be transferred on to any surface. By converting a wall into a virtual touch screen many previous issues will be resolved. Lecturers will easily be able to deliver their information and visual demos in class. Shopkeepers may place interactive ads promoting their products on the walls of their superstores. And even gamers may play fast and furious video games by employing the raised flat surface of a barrier wherever and whenever they want to.

The technology is already purchasable. Over four dozen organizations participated in the creation of this device. The world will now be at your fingertips anywhere anytime. Finally, computerized stuff can enter the public arena in a no-holds barred manner. Basically, an image of a touch screen is projected on to a surface. Then you can interact using your fingers on the touch screen as if it were a tablet or handset.

The facility is available for a price range that varies from $149 to $1499 depending upon the dimensions and level of customer care. $379 basic app for professionals will support 45-inch display while $799 business app will support 100-inch display. This service is a blessing indeed. And it will simplify many matters having to do with information relay from one source to another via text or images on the screen. This app will support only Windows 8 computers and also touch-friendly "Metro" too. Ubi has already tested its beta version with 50 organizations and its sale is open now for every one.
