We've already seen Evoluce toy around with Kinect hacks and multitouch displays, and it's now inevitably managed to combine the two. The company has just announced its new I-Voluce display, which fuses a standard 46-inch LCD with some integrated "3D depth sensing technology" that's apparently not simply a repurposed Kinect -- exact details on it are light, but it will apparently work from a distance of up to 13 feet, and it relies on Windows 7 for an OS. That's obviously not designed for home use, but Evoluce does see plenty of potential for the displays in public spaces like museums, as well as in office and education environments. For those that prefer a more hands-on approach, Evoluce also has an updated version of its Surface-style multitouch table, the Evoluce Two, which also packs 3D depth sensing technology and can accommodate up to six users simultaneously. Of course, neither exactly come cheap -- look for prices to start at €3,995, or about $5,600.

The leading provider of advanced natural user software and screens, Evoluce, introduces today a new generation of large format gesture control displays based on integrated 3D-sensing technologies.

The slim display-design enables large interactive installations in many areas like office, retail, digital signage, exhibitions, gaming, museums, medical applications and education. With a depth of 18.5 cm the unit is easily integrated into horizontal spaces or may be used as a stand-alone table.

The I-VOLUCE and Evoluce TWO are now available. Net prices starting at EURO 3,995.00 and EURO 4,995.00.

"Direct and intuitive interfaces will change the way we interact with the PC and consumer electronics in everyday life." says Wolfgang Herfurtner, CEO of Evoluce AG. "Users will enjoy the great design and the amazing possibilities of fascinating interaction!"
