Windows 7 Touch applications on 3M screen

The dev team at nsquared has been busy working on the nsquared education pack for Windows 7 touch. The screen we have been using to test is the 3M multi-touch screen.
In this video we demonstrate some of the applications running on the 3M screen.

Engaging Education with touch

We've just spent another three days out of the office at the CCA-EDUCAUSE 2011 conference at Darling Harbour. It was a great treat to be surrounded by people who's careers revolve around finding the most interesting and effective technology possible. It was an even bigger treat to be in contact with people who could see the magic of Surface. We forget how spoiled we are in being able to work with this amazing technology on a daily basis.
For us it was a chance to demonstrate our software for collaborative spaces using Microsoft Surface and slate Tablet PCs such as the Tega v2.
As a Microsoft Surface Strategic Partner, it's always good to be able to contribute to our partnership. Of course, nearly everyone wanted a new Surface table (how could they not) and perhaps the biggest 'wonder' point from most people who visited us was not just it's super responsiveness, but more importantly it's suitability for installation in collaborative spaces. I don't think we've ever seen so many eyes light up. It was an honour and treat to be able to part of the enlightenment.
