Microsoft acquires Perceptive Pixel, to sell large screens with Windows 8

(Cc). M.

CEO Steve Ballmer announced during the conference for members of the company’s purchase of Perceptive Pixel, a company focused on research, development and production of tactile interfaces.

The company is known for developing 82-inch touch panels that can be used by several people at once, with the fingers or a stylus.

According to Ballmer, the company is “quite revolutionary” by creating these screens, however, stated that “there is much work to do to lower prices.” Currently one of these screens cost about USD $80,000.

Microsoft expects to sell the huge screens running Windows 8, which is already tested during Mobile World Congress with one of these teams on display.
