Transcript of Interactive Touch Screen Technology

Interactive Touch Screen Technology Learning is Fun The
Screen Definition Summary Interactive touch screens
in our Libraries Touch screens are already being used in libraries around the world for information, education, socialising and fun.
Blended libraries - Such a library would serve it's community at home, in schools, outdoors, and in buildings or rooms that could be geographically, anywhere. Please touch this screen:
Interactive screen launched in
Almere's New Library
(Holland) Inamo Restaurant's
Interactive ordering system
The interactive ordering system allows diners to place orders from an illustrated food and drinks menu projected on to their table surface.

Customers can set the mood, discover the local neighbourhood, order a taxi home!, and of course place an order for food and drinks. Touch and See
a new interactive Touch and See is a different way to experience original items that have been on display in Memory of a Nation.

The multi-touch interactive lets you zoom in, zoom out and move around a range of documents, objects, photographs and footage in the National Archives collection.

Easy tags allow you to explore connections between items. Dangerous Australians
Australian Museum, Jun 08 A 6m long interactive projection that features some of Australia’s most dangerous animals.

As well as risk being bitten or attacked, visitors can use a magnifying glass tool to get a closer look, or find out more about each creature’s habitat and behaviour, or first aid treatment. How it Works There are three
components The Touch Sensor:

is a panel with a
touch responsive
surface. The Controller:

is the hardware that converts the voltage changes on the sensor into signals the computer/device can receive
Software Driver:

tells the computer/device the

information from the Sensor

and the Controller History 2000
In 1983 Hewlett-Packard introduced the

HP-150, a home computer with touch

screen technology

In 1993, IBM released
the first smart phone
called Simon with a
touch screen interface In 1996, Palm

released the

Pilot series Dangerous Australians Video http://player.vimeo.com/video/8324662?color=59a5d1&autoplay=1 Memory of a Nation Video http://player.vimeo.com/video/27843833?autoplay=1 Restaurant Video (cc) image by nuonsolarteam on Flickr The screen presents constant new and updated information to the visitors of the library. The system's special feature is that people can add information to the screen themselves. The information displayed on the interactive screen is not only about the library itself, but also about the city and culture in Almere. Inhabitants from Almere can add information to the screen themselves, for example, by using the tag @SchermAlmere when twittering, or by using the tag or keyword SchermAlmere when posting a photo on Flickr. As research has shown that many people often do not recognize touch screens as such, the visitor is invited to touch and explore the items via a screensaver with the words "Touch me". One important goal of the project is to improve the information services within the library. Via the screen, which has a prominent place in the library, the library and its visitors can inform each other.

A second goal is to strengthen the social function of the library. Almere Library Video http://www.youtube.com/embed/GFVWtOu_0a0?rel=0 A touch screen is a display screen that is sensitive to the touch of a finger or stylus. A touch screen allows users to navigate a computer system by touching icons or links on the
screen. 1990s 1970s
In 2007, Apple introduced
the iPhone - nothing
but touch screen! In 2002, Microsoft
introduced the
Windows XP Tablet In 1977 Elographics developed

and patented

a resistive touch screen A touch sensor was developed by Dr. Sam

Hurst, Elographics, University of Kentucky,

patented by the University's research

foundation in 1971 1980s 1960s

Capacitive touch screen invented by E.A

Johnson at the Royal Radar Establishment,

Malvern, UK, around 1965-67, Article

Newton PDA, equipped
with handwriting
recognition. Infrared

Infrared light beams

A touch breaks the beams and identifies the coordinates Resistive

Glass/acrylic panel, coated with electrically conductive/resistive layers

When the screen is touched the layers press together causing a change in the current and the touch is registered Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW)

Acoustic waves sent across a glass panel with transducers/reflectors

When the screen is touched the waves are absorbed and a touch is detected at that point The British Library

The touch screen "Turning the Pages" kiosks are available
throughout the library.

They allow the user to flip through rare books from the library's collection.

The kiosks are a great way to provide access to digital collections to the public. Multi-touch

Multi-touch is a touch sensing surface's ability to recognize the presence of two or more points of contact with the surface. Types of Touch
