VIDEO: 33 Foot-Long TouchScreen Display

A team of tech students at the University of Groningen (Netherlands) used a 33' x 9' 3-D curved screen to create an incredible multi-touch display. This ginormous screen is capable of more than 100 points of simultaneous contact and was pulled off with surprisingly simple readily available equipment (for a tech student)...
To create their super-sized touch panel, the team converted the 3-millimeter dark acrylic screen panel into a touch screen by backlighting it with six full HD projectors. The rest of the hardware isn’t particularly high-tech; to create the touch sensitivity they used six Optitrack cameras, 16 inexpensive infrared emitters, and 1,000 LEDs.
