Ideum and 3M’s partnership continues to produce innovative advances in large-scale multitouch hardware. Tomorrow morning, at the Digital Signage Expo (DSE) in Las Vegas, the two companies will make an announcement unveiling the high performance Ideum Platform 46 Coffee Table with Android OS. In case you missed it, we blogged last week about Ideum and 3M at DSE 2014 in Las Vegas.
The coffee table features 3M’s 46-inch multitouch display (C4667PW) and Ideum’s signature multitouch table build.
Access super fast apps on the Platform 46 Coffee Table including the same Android apps available for tablets and smartphones. From games and social media to organization and lifestyle apps, this coffee table provides entertainment for everyone.
The Platform 46 Coffee Table’s integrated computer will run Android Version 4.1 (Jellybean) on Intel’s x86 architecture and will be available for purchase later in 2014. The combination of Android and Intel-based hardware makes for an incredibly fast system. This platform will provide new options for developers looking to build locked-down applications for public spaces. We will be expanding this option to other systems and offering dual-OS systems later this year.
Below is a video of the Android coffee table in action. (Update: February 12, 2014) Here is the joint 3M & Ideum press release on the Wall Street Journal site. The press kit can be found on the 3M website.
