company called UBI and microsoft have developed an app that works on windows pc's and with a kinect sensor and with a projector to make a touch screen anywhere you can project!

pricing for the app varies by size

$150 for up to a 45"
professional ($380) and business licenses ($800) can do up to 100"

I think they use something similar to this at my daughter's school. We were there for back to school night a couple years ago and I swear the teacher touched the projector screen and the image changed. I was only half-paying attention though, so maybe I didnt really see what I thought I saw.

This is great, and is sure to take off. I'm expecting the next gen of iPhones to have a projector sometime soon, and something like this would be a logical step to incorporate.

The interactive Halloween screen would be cool! I suppose this would still work with rear projection..?

frosty, they have something basic like this at the Del Amo mall. over by the delicious Cinnabon store and the pricey movie store. it projects something onto the floor from straight overhead. sometimes its an air hockey table where kids stomp on the puck to send it flying. sometimes its an underwater scene where stomping on fish makes musical notes happen. im sure its more expensive than this though

i assume it may not initially but some smarty out there would be able to fix this. i think the software works with the kinect camera to determine where your fingers are to enable the mouse-click. maybe some sorta infared tipped gloves that the kinect sensor can see through the screen material?

My daughters school uses something akin to this tech but via a touch capacitve white board. The whole system is tied into a CPU on the teachers desk. It was really cool and there are a bunch of learning applications out on the market that uses this type of set-up.

It looks like the last guy in the video is using rear projection. There is no shadow like on the other ones.

I am really interested in this idea. I have a kinect sensor lying around doing nothing and this would be a perfect way to make use of it. I really can't affor $150 just to have a 45" touch screen though.

Tronn, I assume if one were to use rear projection they could still use this as long as the kinect sensor were facing the side of the material being touched?

There is a website that also has other interesting uses for the kinect sensor. I have seen others using the sensor in a similar way as the UBI software but the applications are open source.

http://openkinect.org/wiki/Main_Page and http://www.kinecthacks.com/

Of course, I do not have much experience with compiling source code and running applications within a development environment, but maybe someone here might be inspired enough to tailor something for BYT use?
