Microsoft "Microsoft and Perceptive Pixel Inc. (PPI) today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Microsoft will acquire PPI, a recognized leader in research, development and production of large-scale, multi-touch display solutions." Yes, Jeff Han is now a Microsoft employee. This demo still amazes me - from 2006. Before the iPhone. Before Android. Before the iPad. Remember that the next time you wind up in a discussion about who supposedly invented what.

Is this how some of the marker whiteboards work?

It's a standard whiteboard, nothing electronic in it, used with special markers and a detector on the side. It records everything written on the whiteboard to a program.

I've seen this same system hooked up to projection screen and used to interact with a windows desktop.
