CES 2012: ViewSonic Bring the Future to Your Home

The future of technology is often depicted with ‘Minority Report’ style swiping at a holographic interface. While this is awesome, it’s heavily unrealistic for the foreseeable future. Instead the future of home technology is likely to take the shape of the new products that ViewSonic are demonstrating at this years CES.

Built by ViewSonic, the EXOdesk is a 32” 10-point touch tabletop that uses an HTML5 powered user interface created by EXOPC. The EXOdesk demonstrates an intuitive design aesthetic and supports gesture-based control of applications including productivity tools, social networking and games. The desk will be powered by an external PC configured with an Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Intel’s integrated graphics, and Windows® 7.

[quote]“As a leader in display technology, ViewSonic is dedicated to bringing our industry leading innovation to a wide variety of form factors including mobile devices, digital signage, and now, the desktop surface. Our partnership with EXOPC reflects our vision for CES, ‘Touch and See the Difference.’ EXOPC is pushing the envelope of innovation with its multi-touch surface interface and we’re excited to be the exclusive CES hardware vendor to showcase this product.” – said Jeff Volpe, president for ViewSonic Americas[/quote]

The EXOPC EXOstore allows consumers to enrich their surface computing experience by downloading additional applications, as well as backgrounds, themes and other interactive elements to customize the user interface. An HTML5 application development kit enables the software developer community to create tabletop applications that fully utilize the desktop surface environment for a compelling and efficient workstation.

[quote]“Our intuitive touch interface was designed with advanced usage scenarios in mind, for practical solutions that set us apart from the competition. The touch-enabled desktop surface is ideal for a wide variety of business applications that require interactivity and contextual data. Furthermore, the cross-platform compatibility of HTML5 allows us to deliver this experience consistently across a variety of devices and operating systems.” – said Jean-Baptiste Martinoli, co-founder and chief of innovation at EXOPC. [/quote]

 Engineers, architects and designers can leverage this advanced technology to transform the desk into a fully interactive workstation through simple gestures and multi-touch input. Key vertical markets for the EXODesk include education, hospitality, medical, transportation, and other industries requiring impactful interactive communications and enhanced productivity.
