Make anything a touchscreen - even hands

You can play Angry Birds on your phone, laptop, tablet and TV, but how about your living-room wall?
A startup called Ubi Interactive is developing a technology that utilizes the Microsoft Kinect to allow any screen -- or even a projection on a wall -- to become a touchscreen. The software-and-Kinect combo senses when a finger touches a surface, and allows the user to click, drag, drop, scroll, and perform all the expected functions of a touchscreen.

That means you can hurl birds at pigs almost anywhere. Naturally, the world's most popular game was one of the demos that Ubi CEO Anup Chathoth built into the company's test software.
