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.[1][2][3]

Purchasing[edit]

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. [4][5]

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. [6]
