We are happy to announce that we are now partners with HP. This new partnership allows Ideum to provide better integrated hardware solutions. We now offer our popular TouchStand kiosk enclosure complete with a HP TouchSmart 9100 Business PC. Both the stand and the computer come with a three-year warranty.
Over the last year we’ve sold hundreds of TouchStands and they have been used in museums, stores and other busy public environments around the world. Later this year we will be integrating HP computers into our multitouch table.
We’ve recently built out individual pages for the hardware featured on the Multitouch Hardware section of the GestureWorks site. The hardware is divided into categories for easy sorting, making it easy to compare different models of multitouch all-in-ones, notebooks and tablets, displays or tables.
For each device listed, we’ve hunted down reviews, video, specifications and even press releases to provide a comprehensive overview of device strengths and weaknesses without all the legwork. We’ve also enabled comments so we can get feedback from actual users on how the hardware performs. What are you waiting for? Check out the new GestureWorks’ Supported Hardware page for yourself!
GestureWorks is now available and has Windows 7 support.
Updated: October 18, 2009: We will now be releasing GestureWorks on December 3rd, we apologize for the delay. We will be building in support for Windows 7. We will let you know of other new developments as they happen.
On November 10th, we will be releasing GestureWorks; a multitouch Flash development environment (SDK) for both Windows and Mac developers. The package includes “NextWindow” drivers for the HP TouchSmart and Dell Studio One, providing a complete solution for authoring multitouch applications in Flash.

Gestureworks provides a simplified and standardized approach to multitouch application development using Adobe Flash and ActionScript 3. Together with our HP TouchSmart Kiosk Stand, Gestureworks provides everything Flash exhibit developers need to create multitouch enabled computer kiosks. Of course, this Flash framework can also be used with our multitouch table along with Natural User Interface’s Snowflake Software and other devices and software that support the TUIO protocol. You can learn more about GestureWorks by reading our July press release.
