In the past you have seen my interest in multi-touch Windows devices (for instance the Dell’s S2340T 23″ Multi-touch monitor and Microsoft Surface 2.0).
This year a I expect vendors to deliver Windows 8 based computers that resemble a lot of the Microsoft PixelSense (formerly “Microsoft Surface”) technology:
- 10 or more finger touch
- guesture support
- capability to see more than just fingers (i.e. tags, or mobile controllers)
Lenovo seems the first to announce, with an expected availability in June 2013: IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC, with support for 10-finger, guesture, multiple-user, and two-hour battery life.

While fooling around with Microsoft Surface, you are astonished with the number of fingers it supports: 10 is no problem on the Samsung SUR40 which can also do full HD resolution (more specs here).
Not so with the standard Windows 7 touch support: that has only 2.
As I want to increase that to better mimic the development environment to the actual environment a few notes:
