Events at The Tech and the Maxwell Museum

Last week we conducted a workshop at the British Museum in London and hosted an open house to show off Open Exhibits software and our MT55 Platform multitouch table. Our next two events are at The Tech Museum in San Jose and the Maxwell Museum right here in New Mexico.

On November 15th, we’ll be at The Tech Museum in San Jose participating in the Interfaces for the New Decade – Conference and Gallery Opening. You can get tickets for the day long event or you can come by the free evening reception. We will be demoing the Heist software project,which allows visitors to “steal” digital objects from a multitouch table using their mobile devices. We will also have a demo of our Open Exhibits Gigapixel Viewer controlled by a Microsoft Kinect.  If you’re in the Bay Area and want to check out our MT55 Platform multitouch table we will have one at the Tech.
