Today on Wireless Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, the Duet, a new multitouch smart coffee table from Ideum, brings Windows 8 and Android computers into a single unit. You can easily switch between the two operating systems, and the hardware itself is pretty rugged. The smart table contains two independent computer systems that run simultaneously – one for each of the platforms. It’s available in 42- and 46-inch variants, both of which sport high resolutions and the display features palm rejection tech and water resistance.
The panel is chemically strengthened, features an anti-glare coating, and can detect up to 60 simultaneous touch points when using Windows, and up to 12 when running Android. The table is built from a combination of aircraft-grade aluminum and cold-rolled steel, and is designed and constructed in the US. Included is an Intel Edison mini-computer on board, programmed to facilitate fast switching between the two operating systems.
The suggested applications are museums, schools, universities, as well as retail and hospitality settings. Ideum also envisions the Duet as the perfect hub in the home, tying in with existing smart home products by utilizing its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The Duet will start shipping next month with prices starting at 7,950 dollars.
