N-trig Teams Up With ISVs to Highlight New Multi-Touch Application Development

SAN ANTONIO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 3, 2009 N-trig, providers of DuoSense® technology, combining pen and capacitive touch in a single device, today unveils new multi-touch applications running on Windows 7. SID attendees can get hands-on at N-trig’s booth # 479 and can see a demonstration of various new software applications on YouTube.

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. Whether you’re working with photos, video, or a digital painting, you don’t have to rely on menus and mouse clicks to be creative,” said Joe Roberts Executive Vice President, Products for Corel. “Touch innovation from industry leaders like N-trig is enabling Corel to design entirely new, natural and hands-on creative environments for consumers. 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.”

Unlimited New Applications

Multi-touch applications on display at SID include the following:

  • FingerTapps’ photo browser is one example of the suite of commercially available applications available from Fingertapps. As well as the simple task of rotating two images simultaneously using four fingers, this application lets you perform more unique interactions; separating and grouping multiple images simultaneously using a two touch gesture.
  • IdentityMine’s suite of multi-touch applications includes the IdentityMine Product Selector solution starter. This Product Selector will make shopping and browsing products easier for customers utilizing multi-touch. The solution starter serves as a platform for companies to build a customized product selector targeted at their individual store experience.
  • Keisense develops input interfaces to provide accurate prediction and error correction on various touch-driven devices. The context-driven predictive input and search applications leverage innovations in multi-touch key input and gestures on virtual keyboards across the new generation of sophisticated touch screens.
  • Natural User Interface Europe AB’s Snowflake Suite is a complete multi-touch software pack that contains various applications for a wide variety of industries, from gaming to education to entertainment and more. The suite of applications demonstrates the endless possibilities of multi-touch technology and how these concepts can be applied within different user scenarios.
  • SpaceClaim’s multi-touch 3D design application is being developed for engineers and industrial designers to bring the freedom of 3D Direct Modeling to the product design process by providing flexible tools to create, edit, and validate concept designs.

“Multi-touch is the natural progression of how the computing industry is creating and enabling the necessary mobility to offer a more intuitive, natural and personal way of computer interaction in our everyday life,” said Amichai Ben David, CEO of N-trig. “We are working as part of a new ecosystem that will support the launch of Windows 7. It’s impressive to see how ISVs are creating multi-touch enabled applications and taking advantage of true multi-touch capabilities that utilize more than two fingers.”
