Tweede Kamer Touchscreens

1 02 2011

At the Dutch parliament (Tweede Kamer der Staten Generaal) they have got touch-screens which you can use so you can see information about the people that reside there. The screens themselves are great, they are set-up in big tables and can be used by up to four persons at a time. So far i have seen two set-up. The idea was great, but the software was (sorry..) dreadful. I was expecting at least Windows 7 multitouch, but it was not at all, there was no such thing as a multi touch actually. It was more like single touch. The interface looks great, the information is A+, really nice. But, the software is very slow although graphically it is not intensive at all. I had some errors, one of them was the worst; the one where you accidentally touched the screen with more than only 1 finger, then the software got in some brilliant loop. Although camera’s are not allowed I filmed the experience.
