Microsoft and large touch display company Perceptive Pixel Inc. (PPI) have announced their collaboration to work together in the near future. Actually all in all, Microsoft acquires Perceptive Pixel, one of the market leaders in the development of large-scale, unlimited multi-touch devices. Both the parties didn’t disclose their deal or any other plan. Microsoft has just hinted only to use the technology for their upcoming Windows-based PCs.


PPI came to the spotight back in 2008 when some network companies used their technology of large touch displays during the U.S. presidential election. They are the true pioneer in research, development and production of large-scale, multi-touch display solutions.

Microsoft is much more focused on hardware now though it’s fully a software company. Last month they unveiled their much anticipated own branded windows tablet Surface. Now they acquired large touch displays. Some rumors are also blowing about their interest & plan for own Smartphone. Who knows they might want to capture some portion of the Hardware market to compete with Apple.

Kurt DelBene, president, Office Division for Microsoft said, “The acquisition of PPI allows us to draw on our complementary strengths, and we’re excited to accelerate this market evolution. PPI’s large touch displays, when combined with hardware from our OEMs, will become powerful Windows 8-based PCs and open new possibilities for productivity and collaboration.”

This year in MWC, Microsoft demoed PPI’s 82-inch multi-touch display which they called pen-friendly Perceptive Pixel PC. Actually this year, Perceptive Pixel announced the first-ever simultaneous pen and touch technology for its hardware.

Perceptive Pixel founder Jeff Han said, “We are incredibly excited to be working together on our mutual passion to build technologies that enable people to collaborate and communicate. By joining Microsoft, we will be able to take advantage of the tremendous momentum of the Microsoft Office Division, tightly interoperate with its products, and deliver this technology to a very broad set of customers.”
