Like many of you, I am an iPhone lover and always dreaming of having a Microsoft Surface in my room which I know sounds luxury. I love the cutting-edge multi-touch technology, but as a matter of fact, except iPhone and new Macbook, I never got chance to try any other multi-touch screen. So when I realized a Shanghai based company, PQLabs, has its own multi-touch screen solution, I was so excited and arranged a visit to their office right away.

The multi-touch solution developed by PQLabs, named Multi-Touch G² is actually not a screen but a screen overlay that can be easily mounted onto any LCD or Plasma TV monitors. You can deploy the multi-touch technology instantly to existing monitors without the need of any configuration. It is relatively simple, lightweight and low cost. Multi-Touch G² is connected to the computer via a USB cable. Various operation systems, Windows, Mac OS etc can install the PQWindow Software Platform to support multi-touch interactions. (The following video clip can be also viewed on Tudou.)

Founded in 2004, PQLabs was a software development company until early 2008 when they sensed the massive market behind the multi-touch technology. It did not take long for the first prototype which was out in the summer of 2008. The product went public for the first time actually in CES 2009, 8th-11st, January. Now PQLabs has development team in Shanghai and business department in U.S. which is their target market at this moment.
