For those not lucky enough to get to Cannes this year (me included), Schematic debuted a 12ft by 5ft intelligent, multi-user "Touchwall" designed to help delegates get the most from the event. As well as RFID technology that allowed the wall to recognise individual delegates, there were 3D maps, meeting scheduling, personalised workspaces and so on.
It looks impressive enough, but I think the really interesting thing about this (which is touched on in the video, along with the inevitable Minority Report comparison) is the fact that tangible interfaces of this kind are "social by nature" with multiple people working side-by-side meaning that it can foster communication not only through the screen, but in front of it as well. With the socialisation of both enterprise tools and media, it's easy to imagine the potential for both interactive out-of-home and the world of work. Nice.
