Multi Touch Gestures Announced for iQRite Kitset Frame

22 iQRite Multi Touch Gestures

iQRite announces the 22 Gestures to revolutionise your surface

The iQRite iQ1125 Kitset frames is perfect for projection, LCD and plasma panels. Each iQrite Frame can be upgraded from Single to Dual to Multi Touch by simply upgrading the external USB Controller.

The iQRite Infrared Touch Frame is based on patented high precision infra red optical touch technology that detects touch inputs and infra red sensing.

Most existing infra red touch systems do not support high precision because the physical size of the optical sensors limits precision. There have been some recent improvements using a light interpolation technique, however it is still based on software. This kind of software manipulation can not physically improve touch accuracy and its precision can be inconsistent in determining a single touch input from consecutive or multiple inputs.

Unlike other technologies on the market, we have patented our very own infra red technology which offers near pixel level accuracy and extremely fast response times. In addition if offers touch object size recognition, meaning our touch frames can identify whether the touch object is a finger, thumb or a pen. Without the need for a dedicated stylus. Virtually any object can be used as a mouse to perform clicking, smooth dragging and drawing since this technology does not require any ITO coatings. Our touch panels can offer superior clarity and durability at a competitive price. Our touch panel systems can withstand high temperature and humidity. In addition they can be manufactured to be water and dust proof (IP65) to operate in any temperature.

The iQRite Touch Panel is a solid state design. Because it does not deploy any touch overlay or ITO films like capacitance and resistive touch panels, it can work with or without the glass overlay. This unique feature allows for superior clarity, no drift and a simple one time calibration. The aluminium bezel construction makes it very durable and dependable protecting against damage caused by moisture, heat and even vandalism. It has the smallest dimension currently offered for an IR frame in the industry.

The latest iQRite Touch frame model is the iQ1125 series, are easy to assemble and are shipped in compact packages without the glass overlay. This way the end user will save on shipping costs and are able to buy the glass overlay locally without hassle.

If requested a tempered glass overlay can be supplied with your iQRite frame, with optional anti-glare and anti reflection coatings available.

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.

About iQRite

iqritelogosm iQRite is the interactive brand from ICE AV Technology Ltd, a New Zealand based Interactive, Display and Simulation company. We ship and partner worldwide with end users and distributors.

The iQRite Touch Frame is the world’s first kitset touch frame designed for a wide range of applications and any surface or digital display technology. It is available in sizes from 10″ – 200″ size areas. The low profile frame bezel is only 11.5mm thick, universal outer frame attachments, modern styling, optional glass sheet panel and the USB plug n’ touch delivers simplicity and reliability not previously seen in single, dual and multi-touch technology.

iQRite Kitset Touch Frame

Touch is destined to become the next must have in computer hardware and in particular Multi Touch. iQRite Touch Frames enable display manufacturers, AV integrators, installation designers, retailers, home entertainment, shop window, essentially any where that people can interact with, control and manage digital content.

Currently we offer single touch capability up to 200″ dia (4m wide) and now on the cusp of launching 10 point multi-touch up to 52″ diagonal and 150″ dia for Q3 2010. This exciting capability for true multi-touch in a kit set format (1 minute assembly) the moment, will allow plug and play multi touch solutions to be setup without specialized knowledge on the Microsoft Windows platform.

This move towards multi-touch came to prominence with the Microsoft Surface and the profile Jeff Han achieved with his promotion of the multi-touch concept at his TED presentation where he wowed the audience …the single click barrier was gone for ever.

Microsoft’s Windows 7 OS with multi touch as a core functionality is destined to change once more how you interact with your computer. iQRite is here today with you allowing you to make any monitor or surface to be single, dual and multi touch compatible. Imagine making your monitor multi touch with intuitive ways of interacting with content, projected images, coffee tables that are redefined in their use.

We welcome inquiries and expressions of interest from software developers wishing to explore packaging, bundling, resale and licensing opportunities for their software applications.
