ubi-interactive-600x327A new app debuted on August 15 that can turn any surface into a touchscreen.

Developed by Ubi Interactive, the app combines with Microsoft’s Kinect motion-sensor device, and an image projector, to allow any projection of a computer screen to be controlled with motion commands.

This means that any wall, ceiling, table top, or floor can essentially be converted into a giant tablet, and thus board rooms, class rooms, and bed rooms everywhere are about to get a whole lot more interactive. This technology has been in the making for years, but is only now arriving on the consumer market.

“By making it possible to turn any surface into a touch screen, we eliminate the need for screen hardware and thereby reduce the cost and extend the possibilities of enabling interactive displays in places where they were not previously feasible – such as on walls in public spaces,” said Ubi co-founder and CEO Anup Chathoth in a blog post.

Kinect uses 3D mapping technology, so the system detects precise movements. For instance, users are able to flip through pages without selecting items on the screen, exactly as they can with a smartphone or tablet.

To operate this system, users will need a computer running Ubi software, a projector, and the Kinect for Windows sensor. The full set-up can cost anywhere from $400 to $2,000, depending on the sophistication of the Ubi software selected.
