CNN Goes High-Tech For Super Tuesday

Feb 6 2008 - 10:40am

Last night when I was watching all of the election coverage on CNN [1], I couldn't help but notice national correspondent John King tapping a touch-sensitive monitor to show election results across various states.

Described as the "Multi-Touch Collaboration Wall" by its inventor, Jeff Han [2] of Perceptive Pixel, the multitouch display can to showcase animated maps, videos, photos, live streams of websites, and charts.

"It's a stupendous way to explain a lot of complicated data," says David Bohrman [3], chief producer of CNN's political coverage. This highly interactive display is said to cost around $100,000.
