Portable Large Multitouch Display Concept

portabledisplayWhat do you get when you combine a small computer, a projector, and a suitcase?  You get the “Portable Large Interactive Display”.  A prototype, from Hiep Truong, is small enough to be portant and turn any bright flat surface into an up-to 60″ multi-touch display.

For my master thesis at the Faculty of Industrial Design at the University of Technology in Delft I developed a portable system which allows users to create a 60inch multi-touch projection at virtually any flat surface. The concept featured a suitcase containing all the necessary components to create an interactive surface on a flat bright table.

An application is developed to support users in the building industry in performing ad-hoc meetings where large scale building plans can be projected and discussed on a meeting table.

A very impressive project indeed.  See video of it in action after the break.
