Multi-touch hardware and software company Ideum is exploring a potential future for the workplace in which traditional desks give way to projected capacitive touch (PCT) tables that you use with both hand gestures and tangible objects.
The project is called the Dynamic Desktop, and it’s an idea that creative director and CEO Jim Spadaccini believes will work on any PCT screen.
“Tangible interfaces are compelling, since we all interact with objects of all kinds every day,” Spadaccini tells Gizmag. “We like our physical keyboards and notepads, and the sensation of moving and interacting with real objects, for instance, but we’re increasingly mired in a flat world of touchscreen convenience wherein the virtual beats the physical because it syncs up to the cloud and is more easily shared around the globe.”
Ideum’s Dynamic Desktop is embracing that convenience while also attempting to preserve and extend the tangibility of the physical object. You can put your phone down on the screen, for example, and drag out a few photos to share on social networks or some documents you want to work with on your desktop. Or you can plop a keyboard down and get right to work on a new document while a dozen other interfaces dot the edges of your desk.
You can get a greater sense of how it works in the video.
