CUBIT is an open source multi-touch system designed by Stefan Hechenberger and Addie Wagenknecht for Nortd Labs. It was developed to "demystify multitouch" technology through making its software and hardware open source and is a direct competitor of Microsoft Surface.
As of May 2, 2008 they are accepting orders for developer kits which they call the TouchKit. Users can purchase the Touchkit so long as they supply their own projector/camera at a cost estimated to be between $1080 and $1,580 USD. 
The CUBIT system currently is for sale by commission basis only and both are rumored to have a two to three month waiting list as of July 2008.
