Multi-touch display technology on display at Computex

Multi-touch monitor technology shown at Computex.

“Albatron is one of the first companies demonstrating what appears to be a production ready multi-touch device…Albatron integrated the technology into a 22″ LCD providing a resolution of 1680 x 1050 pixels. According to Doncevski, multi-touch is not affected by typical touch-screen limitations. Screen sizes of 24” and above simply require a third sensor on top of the screen…Pricing and availability has not been announced, but we were told that physical price of this multi-touch screen is only 20% above a regular LCD.”

Of this desktop-sized monitor Ryan Block of Engadget says: “Don’t count on multi-touch being a huge feature for any computers used primarily at a desk.”

Well, beg to differ with you Ryan, but think of the screen laying flat or slightly at an angle. Multi-touch sure gets more interesting. As I see it, just like we needed special landscape/portrait mounts for monitors, we’re going to need special horizontal mounts for multi-touch monitors now too.
