Good for shops, airports etc. Useless for home unless you have a bunch of kids. I wouldn't like to see smudges and fingerprints all over my monitor every time I use PC. Plus most people like to sit away from PC and relax. I would welcome some tech at reasonable price that would make coffee table a touchscreen or even touch input. But then again, that would be more used by families.

10ms isn't bad, much better than the 100ms on most touch-screen phones.. I can't wait to see them hitting the 1ms response times soon.

On screens that small the usefulness is lost. Put that tech in a 60+ inch table top display and you have a whole new work environment. No more iPads and laptops in the conference room, you just use the table.

I own a 21 inch 1080p albatron optical multitouch screen that has 5 touch points and costs around 300 dollars how does 3m justify a price difference of 1700.- for +15 touch points and more importantly who uses 20 fingers anyway?

Collaboration as in multiple people working on the large screens at once that is what this is for.

Yeah, I kinda got that, but just exactly how much invasion of personal space is going on when more than a single person works on a 27 inch monitor within touching distance

A 40" surface, laid out like a table, with a person on each side I can see, but a desktop monitor?

Pointless
