BendDesk: Multi-Touch on Curved Display

BendDesk is a curved interactive surface that combines a horizontal and vertical multi-touch surface seamlessly with a curve. Using the power from two projectors and three cameras, Malte Weiss, Simon Voelker, and Jan Borchers from Media Computing Group at AWTH Aachen University create their own “benddesk” featuring multi-touch technology! If Apple ever created a desktop (A literal desktop, not the computer..) this is what I’d imagine it to look like.
