N-trig will be demonstrating a number of full multi-touch applications that enable the use of more than two fingers to work and play on their computer screen. These applications were designed using N-trig’s DuoSense pen and multi-touch technology, and can be utilized by consumers and businesses for a wide range of activities, including consumer gaming, multi-media management, retail shopping and high-end engineering applications.
“We are pleased to see how quickly our partners are developing multi-touch applications on Windows 7. This not only speaks to the ease of use in development, but also to the vision that these companies have in bringing people a unique experience and closer to their computers,” said Ian LeGrow, principal group program manager, Microsoft Corp. “N-trig is helping to lead the way for both innovative ways to interact with a PC and promoting involvement with hands-on computing. This is an exciting time for consumers and businesses alike as we get closer to the Windows 7 launch and availability of multi-touch capabilities.”
N-trig is committed to supporting the entire multi-touch ecosystem, as each of the key players strives to expand new multi-touch environments to the consumer and enterprise markets. Today’s users have become accustomed to touchscreens, at grocery stores, movie theatres and cash point machines and users can now interact directly with their own computers, manipulating items on the screen using more than two fingers – a natural and enhanced extension of how we work and play in today's modern world.
“Windows 7 and Windows Touch are giving Corel’s software designers an incredible opportunity to enhance how consumers experience creative software.

Later this year, Corel will be unveiling unique and engaging multi-touch-enabled products that will help people get even more expressive with their PCs.”
