Mac Coffee Table : Apple has yet to introduce the long speculated MacBook Tablet, but ask any angry engineering or graphic art student,and they’ll tell you the release of one would change their life. Well, a few revolting geeks of Switzerland‘s Cosm!k’ Art Deco Team couldn’t wait any longer and decided to make their own. By fitting a flat screen and an Apple iBook G4 laptop into a coffee table, they’ve created a coffee table jukebox with synched visualizers. It can also play DVDs in the side, or you can pull out the wireless keyboard and mouse and use it as a (somewhat) normal computer. Okay, so it’s not quite the touch tablet, but who knew it was so much fun to watch movies on a coffee table?
The new Razorfish Touch Framework software is designed to simplify the creation of touch-based advertising experiences that work on multiple Microsoft Windows-based platforms and surfaces including retail kiosks, window displays and mobile devices, said Jonathan Hull, director of Razorfish Emerging Experiences, the team that created it. Razorfish has been demonstrating applications of the Razorfish Touch Framework for more than a year, but only now is offering the software for licensing by its clients.
