3M Multi-Touch Displays to include “no charge”copy of Gestureworks Core Authoring Software to help developers create immersive, multi-touch/multi-user interfaces

3M Touch Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3M Company, today announces that for a limited time 3M high-performance, multi-touch desktop displays will ship with a “no charge” coupon to redeem Gestureworks Core, a leading multi-touch authoring solution. Now offered in conjunction with 3M’s 18.5”, 21.5”, 24” and 27” multi-touch desktop displays, the Gestureworks multi-touch software authoring framework provides developers with a development platform for creating exciting and immersive multi-touch and multi-user interfaces. When combined with the high-performance features of 3M Multi-touch displays, up to 40 touches and less than 10ms ultra-fast response time, Gestureworks Core is an ideal tool for developers to design, test and implement their next generation multi-touch applications.

“3M is pleased to offer our display customers an opportunity to redeem Gestureworks Core at no charge to help them build the immersive, multi-touch applications they envision,” says Diego Romeu, global business unit manager, 3M Electronic Business Solutions. “The high-performance multi-touch characteristics of 3M Multi-Touch Displays help unleash the development potential of this multi-touch platform.”

“We are thrilled to have our Gestureworks authoring platform offered with 3M multi-touch displays” says Jim Spadaccini, CEO of Ideum (the parent company of Gestureworks). “3M multi-touch screens are well-known for their accuracy and responsiveness. We’ve been using 3M multi-touch screens for development and installations for the last several years. These two products, if combined by the user, give developers everything they need to create amazing cutting-edge applications.”

For a limited time (until December 1, 2013), buyers of 3M multi-touch desktop displays (3M Multi-touch Display M1866PW (18.5”), 3M Multi-touch Display M2167PW (21.5”), 3M Multi-touch Display M2467PW (24”) and 3M Multi-touch Display M2767PW (27”)), will receive a coupon good for a free copy of Gestureworks Flash or Gestureworks Core for C++, C# .NET, Java, Python, and HTML5. This coupon ($199 value) can also be applied to Pro or Site license versions of Gestureworks.
