Reactable multitouch table / musical instrument goes into production
This so-called Reactable built by some researchers at Pompeu Fabra University has been making the rounds of trade shows and other events for quite a while now, but it looks like the group is now really getting their act together by forming a company (Reactable Systems) and putting the device into production. The table itself is not too dissimilar from some of the other multitouch tables out there, but it takes a slightly different tact by focusing primarily on the device’s potential as a musical instrument. To make things even simpler for the users, the table makes use of a series of “pucks” that each control a different aspect of the system, and are able to interact with each other when they’re in close proximity. No word on a price or actual release date just yet, as you might expect, but you can check it out in action in the video after the break.
Last MusicRadar heard, there were only two of these in the world – but now newly-formed company Reactable Systems is going to put the Reactivision-based Reactable into production.
