at cebit 2008 we are introducing instantware. it is a sub brand of instantreality for our custom interaction devices and services like the multi-touch table and heyewall, movablescreen and our mobile augmented reality applications.
the multi-touch table will be presented at BMBF booth (hall 9, b40). johannes and yvonne build a ubercool architectural application. it features several scalable plans of messe frankfurt’s new hall 11. multiple users can move and zoom these plans like you know it from other multi-touch applications.
but the key feature is the tile with a high quality 3d view of the building. they implemented the multi-touch 3d camera gestures jens and i introduced last year: you are grabbing a plan with the left hand. one finger of right hand moves the camera through the 3d model. the second finger defines the orientation of the camera. this enables incredible cinematic camera movements in 3d. when the second finger points on a certain object on the plan and the first fingermoves around it the 3d camera moves around that object while keeping it on focus.
