So with all the multi-touch products out there (and the number seems to be growing exponentially), there appears to be is a multi-touch software shortage, believe it or not. There are very few multi-touch software programs (or developers) out there to assist OEMs with showcasing their multi-touch solutions. Short of creating software from scratch or simply using the Microsoft Surface Touch Pack for Windows 7, OEM’s software options are slim at best.
Enter NUITEQ, a Swedish multi-touch software technology company who provides off the shelf and customized software solutions for interactive multi-touch displays. Its multi-touch software product Snowflake Suite, which is available to SI’s, VAR’s, OEM’s, software developers and end clients, operates on a wide variety of multi-touch hardware technology platforms ranging from camera based solutions and IR overlay systems to capacitive, resistive and other technologies that are integrated in mobile phones, tablets, laptops, desktops and large scale interactive displays.
Touch International recently partnered with NUITEQ and is running the Snowflake Suite on its MulTI-Touch projected capacitive developer kits, which allows the company to demonstrate its products’ full multi-touch capabilities. The Snowflake interface really gives OEMs an edge because it functions and looks a lot like the iPhone, which of course, is the standard for today’s touch screens.
NUITEQ is quickly becoming a highly recognized company world-wide and has received numerous awards and accolades including Winner of the 2010 Red Herring Global 100 Award and 10th Most Promising Tech Startup in the World by Innovate 2010.
