I'm looking for environmental touchscreen examples along the lines of the
Accenture Interactive Network installed at O'Hare last year:

Anyone familiar with other touchscreen examples that are somewhere
in-between your typical Walgreens kiosk and Jeff Han's multitouch demo (in
terms of complexity)? There was a nice IxDA thread about this a few years
ago, but I'm looking for more recent projects. Bonus points if they're in
the Bay Area so I can go check them out in person.

I happened upon a touchscreen kiosk at a mall in San Francisco a few
weekends back. I couldn't tell you exactly what mall it was at, but
maybe you can figure out from the photos. It was on Market, I believe...

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but I hope that helps. :-)

Go into any retail location of The North Face and you'll find a
touchscreen WPF+Vista driven touchscreen that enables browsing of
videos (mapped on 3D objects), special order tickets for not-in-stock
items, and product comparisons. One of first WPF + Vista production
applications released in the wild.

- White paper by its developer (I was the creative director), although this was for the prototype as opposed to the final units in-store:

- Blog entry by same:

- Video of the prototype at the 2006 Microsoft PDC:

- TNF store locator:

Best.

The company I work for makes these . There's a lot you can do with them - great for showing temporal rrelationships x-ray views, multi path narrative, - we use them extensively in our museum work. They can be set up in both the horizontal and vertical.

Not sure if its exactly the kind of thing you're looking for, but the hold up really well in public spaces.

Jeff,

You might find interesting to have a look at the LiMe (Living Memory)
project by Philips Design
(http://www.design.philips.com/about/design/section-13506/); there is
also a lot of pictures available here
(http://www.design.philips.com/About/Design/Section-13617/Index.html)

"LiMe is a network of augmented places within the local community
which support the creation and meaningful distribution of informal
content within that community. LiMe provides low-threshold interfaces
in natural meeting and crossing points within that community, such as
cafes and bus stops."

Notice many similarities between interaction style with LiMe's Coffe
Table and MS' Surface; the small issue is that LiMe was completed
almost 10 (!) years ago, in 1997. Yes, at those times it didn't have
any multi-finger interaction, but multi-token style was already
envisaged, and embedded. Another interesting detail is that the
person portrayed on many of the LiMe pictures, Anton Andrews, who was
in fact a design director of the project, has left Philips Design and
joined - guess whom? - Microsoft.

"We must always make connections, ever more connections, since they
are not already given.
For to connect is to affirm, and to affirm, to connect". - John Rajchman
