Microsoft and Ubi Interactive worked together to develop technology that turns any surface into a multi-touch screen. The set-up requires a projector, Kinect for Windows sensor, Windows 8 operating system and the Ubi software to work. Ubi is now taking orders for the product, called Ubi, on its website
. A FAQ explaining how the set-up works can be found here
. Prices range from $149 to $1499 for the Ubi software. The price varies by the number of touch points and display size.
