Global Touchscreen

Chris Harrison and Robert Xiao from Carnegie Mellon University have together invented a latest experimental technology system that allows the user to turn any surface into a touchscreen.

The system named WordKit reportedly pairs a depth–sensing camera lens with a projector lens to turn a surface into a touchscreen. The WordKit senses depth through a projector that is mounted to a ceiling or on a tripod.

Robert Xiao states that the technology enables the user to select a surface and ‘paint’ an interactive object like a button or sensor after which, the selected area displays the chosen interface that can be manipulated through gestures or touch.

The most wonderful and precious element of universe is the human life which can only be guided by the right knowledge and right attitude. So, here is an ocean of knowledge, both in English and Hindi encompassing every detail and each facet of human life which ‘one must know’ in order to grow and attain the summits of success. A team of around 200 dedicated members is working ceaselessly to turn such a colossal dream into reality. We are confident that this portal will help bring change in people across the world.
