Open House Event at the IMLD

On Thursday, November 20th, we had an Open House Event at the Interactive Media Lab Dresden. The event took place directly after the international tabletop conference (ITS 2014), organized by the IMLD, and combined two exciting scientific talks by Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale and Dr. Miguel Nacenta with demos of our research prototypes. A buffet sponsored by MultiTouch Ltd. supplied our guests with the energy needed. Also, Dr. Tommi Ilmonen, CTO of MultiTouch Ltd., presented the technology behind our interactive multitouch wall and was able to answer questions. We thank MultiTouch Ltd. for sponsoring the event and all our guests for their interest in our research and the valuable, positive feedback.
