Jon Roskill and Steve Clayton join one of my colleague Dr Dave Brown at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) 2012 in Toronto for live a demonstration of the Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft PixelSense featuring Dave's creation NUIverse.
NUIverse is simply an amazing example of natural user interface and highlights the unique properties of the Samsung SUR40 and PixelSense technology that enables collaborative multitouch experience using objects. Developed by Dave over the past year NUIverse really does show off the power of Pixel Sense and the immersive nature of the SUR40 device for more indepth details of the development process concepts and Dave's patents for Users controls see http://drdave.co.uk/blog

I am looking forward to what the researchers and post docs at your institutions can do with these amazing devices.
Alright, I have been trying to contact Samsung reps for 4 weeks. Today I got an email from one of them but it sounded like they want a business plan. I'm wondering if they are serious about this product. Do they want to sell it or not? I'm a .NET software developer and I would like to make this platform a niche. Do I need more? Do I need to reveal the type of applications I want to do and who I want to sell it to?
Sorry I cannot comment on Samsung approach, if your in the UK The distributor is http://www.midwich.com/ they should be able to help you out.
Hope this helps
