Obscura Digital, who specialise in interactive media, have released a video demonstrating their new VisionAire “multitouch” projection system. The company themselves admit that it’s not exactly true multitouch, since there’s actually no contact involved; in fact, you gesture around in mid-air to control different windows and other objects. Multiple people can use the system at the same time.

There isn’t much in the way of technical details; the Obscura blog describes it as “our standard multi-touch framework [integrated] with the Musion system we have in house”. Musion are a company that produces a high-definition freeform 3D holograph on a live stage.
No word on whether this system will be made commercially available.
