We just received an email from Luis Cabrera (former Surface SDK Platform Program Manager), a person whom we respect very much from the professional point of view and we believe is one of the leading figures in the NUI world, in which he invited us to attend the Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2013 Conference.
He was saying about the event:
I have been to the conference 2 times before (once in Japan and once in Germany), and in both cases it was an amazing experience. It was like drinking from a fire-hose trying to absorve all the latest research in surface and tabletop computing.
A proposal that you can not refuse then! Definitely we will attend the event and given the assumptions we would encourage you all to participate.
We hope to meet you all there, it would be great to talk together about NUI.
As many of you noticed the Windows Store lists apps by category and for each category can browse the top 100 paid, free or newest. But it seems that there is no way to browse all the apps of the store or at last all apps of a category:
We found a workaround for that: just open the search feature and type in * so you will do a wildcard search that will show you a list of the apps in the store
Well now you can tune your search by selecting a category, if you are looking for paid / free / trial apps and by selecting your favorite ordering (newest, relevance, rating etc.) you will be able to see all the apps present in the store for the purpose you are looking for
Every year at CES, technology gets bigger. We've seen 80-inch more multitouch devices, 6-inch phablets, and now Lenovo has upped the ante with an awesome touch-based. Too big to be a tablet and too touch oriented to be your average all-in-one PC, the Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon for us is is the first so-called table PC for both families and business.
And it is the size of a table. When we first laid eyes on this 27-inch beast, we imagined a group of architects or engineers using it to study the latest blueprints. However, we were surprised to learn that Lenovo plans to market the Horizon to home users.
Armed with Windows 8, plus a custom interface of Lenovo's own design and a few games made especially for this big touchscreen, Lenovo's IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC is ready to take the living room by storm. While we loved playing on this big high definition display, we wonder if it's too niche or, dare we say, unwieldy for the average household.
Propped up on a desk, the Horizon actually doesn't seem that mammoth. 27-inches is a great size for an HD display, especially if you dabble in gaming or graphic design. A built in stand on the back keeps it at a comfortable, familiar viewing angle.
Fold that stand into the Horizon's back and the display lays flat. This is the Horizon at its most unique, and also its most cumbersome. For our deomstration at CEs the Horizon was loaded into a custom rolling table. This made it easy to move the horizon into place, and get four or so people gathered around it.
Of course, we have no such setup in our house. While we were the idea of gathering around the Horizon to share photos and YouTube videos with friends, we struggled to think of where we would do so in our apartment.
It's not bound to a power cable though. The Horizon has a battery that allows it to go untethered for two hours, according to Lenovo.
All are equal around the Horizon
Laying the Horizon flat triggers Lenovo's custom UI. Design specifically for the multiple users gathered around the table PC at all sides, every icon can be moved and rotated. Adjusting the orientations of the photo wheel and app selector makes for an extremely democratic setup where all users have equal access.
Four friends gathered around a rectangle recalls a board game session, and the Horizon actually comes loaded with Monopoly, among other games. EA Games had made a custom version of the classic game of capitalism, which can be played Horizon-style, with friends standing at each side.
Ubisoft has also made a top-down, fast and furious shooter. This game is controlled using joysticks that suction cup onto the Horizon's glass. There are also sliding strikers used for controlling air hockey, and a e-dice that can be rolled on any surface, with the outcome automatically reported to the Horizon.
While these applications were designed for the Horizon, they weren't flawless. Air hockey felt a tad laggy. The plastic strikers dragged their digital counterparts with a little bit of lag. It felt a big like dragging a magnet.
The Horizon Table PC may not look like your average computer, but its got familiar internals. When it releases this summer, it'll be available with i3, i5 and i7 configurations, and up to 8 GB of RAM and a 1 TB hard drive.
Horizon's UI is meant for use from all sides
Its display is full HD at 1080 x 1920, and it supports 10-point multi-touch. It runs Windows 8 spectacularly, We've never enjoyed simply navigating the start screen so much as we did with this massive touch-friendly screen.
Coming summer 2013
When you like at it as an all-in-one, the Lenovo Horizon Table PC isn't so niche. Packing everything inside that 27-inch touch display for the sort of simple, elegant presentation we usually see from Apple.
While the reclined mode is the most fun, it's also the least practical. If you've got the space, it would be a great way to share vacation photos or play a board game or two. The fact that Lenovo has garnered support from EA Games and Ubisoft, giants of the gaming space, has us hopeful that more apps will be designed for this unique device.
Finally, it's not terribly expensive either, at least for the lower end version. i3 configurations start at only $999, so even if you're not running your own graphic design firm, the Horizon Table PC isn't out of your reach.
From all the devices presented at CES 2013 we was impressed by device presented by Displar device and its potential to bring us closer to the fluid gesture control seen in Minority Report.
"Displair is a super advanced humidifier," says a company spokesman. Okay, sounds boring, but stick with us for a second. All it takes for the Displair "humidifier" to transform from boring home appliance to sci-fi nerdgasm is a projector and an infrared camera.
The demo on hand at CES 2013 showed a Displair unit with a projector beaming Windows 7 onto its fogscreen. A PlayStation Eye camera attached via USB to the Windows PC then projects an infrared light on top of the projection. Still reading?
From there, all it takes for Displair to astound and amaze is to tweak a few settings for an app such as Google Earth or Fruit Ninja and you're on your way to slashing virtual fruit in mid-air.
Displair was created in a student dorm in Russia by Maxim Kamanin and can track over 10 fingers through the 1,500 points of multitouch points it projects. We're told it has won multiple awards and was even been praised by former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
As of now, the company plans to have release Displair by the end of the year for about $10,000. How large of a fogscreen $10k will get you is uncertain, but the company says it can produce sizes between 40- and 140-inches.
One more thing: Displair does work like a normal humidifier, too
LAS VEGAS 3M Touch Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3M Company, as an innovation leader in projected capacitive (PCAP) touchscreen technology and electronics, , is showcasing its multi-touch expertise at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 by featuring an 84-inch multi-touch display prototype. This combination of expansive on-screen collaboration space and 3M’s high-performance multi-touch technology offers users an unparalleled multi-user experience as a multi-touch display wall or interactive table.
“3M continues to challenge the size limitations of high-performance multi-touch technology, and the investments we have made in developing robust and proprietary PX electronics platform are enabling us to achieve our innovation goals,” says Diego Romeu, business operations manager, 3M Touch Systems. “Our 84-inch multi-touch prototype display demonstrates 3M’s ability to scale PCAP electronics and sensor manufacturing to meet the need of our customers for increasingly larger format touch solutions.”
The table is still in prototype mode, but already supports up to 40 simultaneous touches, and features a display with 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution.
The table's projective capacitive display runs on wired-based sensors, unlike the ITO-based sensors used in last year's version, which the company says allowed them to scale up without sacrificing performance. The idea is to use the table in educational settings, including museums and schools, though 3M has yet to announce a specific price. By the time the table hits the market in Q3 of this year, it should support more than 100 concurrent touches.
We are pleased to announce that it will shortly be available on the Microsoft MSDN site an app for PixelSense our app through which you can search and watch YouTube videos directly on PixelSense and any other multitouch device based on Windows.

Saturday, December 29 at 20.45 on Rai5, Digital Terrestrial Television channel 23, our bePresenter aired with the program Memesis directed and led by Gian Carlo Corada ex former president of the province and ex former mayor of Cremona.
Corada, professor of history and philosophy, worked from October the State University of Milan and now with Rai. The transmission was filmed in Cremona (between the library and the museum) and Castelleone (at the Church of St. Mary Bressanoro and the market).
Corada addresses, with the help of bePresenter, the theme of artistic commissions of the religious orders in the '400 and '500, with special reference to the Lombard reality and to amadeiti. The argument is developed from the point of view of art, philosophy, politics, religion, to the dissemination who want to make the subject accessible to non-specialists.
Is imagined classroom with students where the professor explains the events using one of our multitouch device mounted on a motorized tilting wall mount that harnesses the power of our bePresneter to show immaggini frescoes and paintings.
This issue of "Mimesis" may be the first of a series which goes between the summer and autumn of 2013.
