Do all touchscreen table tops have to be flat like the Microsoft Surface? This is what the folks at Media Computing Group have recently re-defined with their latest technology BendDesk. This is truly cutting-edge stuff. BendDesk is a multi-touch desk environment that seamlessly combines a vertical and a horizontal touch surface with a curve into one large interactive workspace. Before you start wondering whether this is just another never-to-see-day-of-light concept, we can tell you its not only just an idea anymore.

As you will see in the video below, the BendDesk workspace can be used to display any digital content like documents, photos, videos or even play games. The multitouch technology in the BendDesk allows users to interact with the entire surface of the desk using direct physical manipulation as it follows and recognises your multi-touch gestures. Check out the video demo below, might you picture yourself in something like this in the next ten years or so?

One Response to BendDesk: This could be your future workspace

    Is this a prototype? By the looks of the BendDesk, it seemed like it’s not yet in it’s final product state because I don’t see the whole desk being enticing to my eyes. Sure it can move pictures, videos and documents here and there. But the thing is, you’re like playing an old pong game with a wooden box that’s not flat.
    Space invaders looked cool with it and all but I’d be dizzy playing using this thing.
    This would however be of great use with graphic artists because they have a bigger work space. I’ve seen graphic artists complain because their things are all scattered because of the small work space so i think this would go well with them.
