iQRite and HoloDesk bring a new level of excitement to the dance floor

HoloDesk is the latest generation of interactive technology that is hitting dance parties and clubs world-wide. The HoloDesk systems are currently available in two interactive options. Edgeless and Framed. Internationally renowed DJ, Deadmau5 went for the Edgeless solution where it appears a clear dual imaging surface is suspended in mid air. His final concert for 2010, packed the Earl Court (London) venue to capacity in one of his most amazing hi-tech shows last Saturday.

The screens (2) built for the concert is the world’s largest commercially available interactive virtual DJ desk. It is one of 5 shipping sizes that have been designed with one thing in mind, to bring the high tech touch and visual world to the DJ market on a scale never seen before.

The HoloDesk is a virtual imaging touch dual imaging touch screen and is manufactured in a variety of sizes and options.

We knew we had a tiger by the tail from comments we started to receive from those in the know, who knew what we were developing. It was not long before the comments turned into inquiries from around the world from DJs wanting to know how they could get their hands on a HoloDesk.

The HoloDesk versions shipping today is only the start of the exciting development path we have for the HoloDesk as we bring a range of features and continued innovation to the surface.

The Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2010 Conference

The Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2010 conference is this year in Germany in November 2010.

ITS 2010 is an important calendar event show casing and presenting research in the design and use of new and emerging tabletop and interactive surface technologies and is run in cooperation with ACM.
ITS 2010 will bring together top researchers and practitioners who are interested in both the technical and human aspects of interactive tabletop and surface technologies.  The aim is to achieve increased synergy of approaches between the disciplines engaged in the research in the area of interactive tabletops and surfaces, Design, HCI, UbiComp, Psychology, MobileHCI and other related fields.
Events such as ITS 2010 are are important stepping stone due to the diversity required within the interactive community, the growth of the discipline in a wide variety of areas, including innovations in ITS hardware, software, interaction design, and studies expanding our understanding of design considerations of  interactive tabletops and services and their role and applications in modern society.
ITS2010 will encourage immediate interdisciplinary collaboration on future research topics. Young scholars and Ph.D. students are especially encouraged to submit papers and participate in the doctoral colloquium.
