You’ve Got the Touch
By Steve Glissman | Dec 20, 2011 | Insights
One of the exciting technology trends as we enter 2012 is the increasing ubiquity of touch technology. Introduced to most of us via Apple’s iPods, iPhones and iPads, touch has quickly expanded to non-Apple consumer technology such as Amazon’s Kindle Fire and various other Android devices. In addition, the use of touch technology continues to expand into the enterprise and beyond.
In a recent blog post “The Power of Touch,” Dannette Veale discussed how researchers at the University of Munich are developing “a solution that enables anything to be touch driven.” As the video demonstrates, you can finally use your spare bucket as steering wheel for video games.
For more practical and immediate use, the Cisco TelePresence Touch 12 allows you to integrate touch technology into your TelePresence solution. This 12-inch device works with the entire end point line of Cisco TelePresence line.
As touch technology continues to progress into the enterprise, it’s novelty will fade as it becomes commonplace. The truth is simple. You’ve got the touch. You’ve got the power.
