The 'Magic Wall'

I'm not sure if or where you watched coverage of the 2008 US elections but if you saw CNN's 'Magic Wall' at any stage I imagine you were pretty impressed.

The system was created and installed by Perceptive Pixel, who have designed and developed an interface that allows a user to interact with their information in a way no one has achieved with a commercial, available product.

Sure the system retails at $100k but lets face it, there are plenty of companies just like CNN who would be willing to pay this. This type of technology would be perfectly suited to corporate lobbys as information touchpoints and net access points. Imagine interactive maps that could utilise Google Street View style visualisations at various points around themeparks or shopping centres.

Enough said, check out the video....
