Interactive Walls

This post is a little bit more "techy" than we typically get, but in this day and age, how can you not surrender to technology every once in a while? Though so far, these walls do not have much of place in the advertising arena, they sure do attract attention. While different firms have taken these to different levels, each is just as interesting as the last.

First, check out Perceptive Pixel's Multi-Touch Wall. This thing makes the iPad look like a child's toy, and there is an even bigger attention grabber - this video is from 2007.

Now, that obviously looks cool, but would you like to actually learn something about amazing technology like this? Intel has a much less user friendly, but still very impressive touch-screen wall, and an interview along with it. This one was built using all Intel processors, including the Intel Core i7, Intel Centrino 2, and the Intel Atom.

Last, check out how uses a touch-screen wall to revolutionize the office.

The question is, where is this all leading us? If some of these walls have been around since 2007, what does that mean for the consumer market? It seems like an interesting cycle. When computers were first invented, they took up an entire room. Now that the power of a computer can fit in your pocket, is it time to revisit the mega-computers of the past and revolutionize technology once again? Do you think this will once again affect how we access information? Let us know your thoughts!
