New mayor brings multitouch table ‘Creating Spaces’ to Ford Genk

Posted by Selina Schepers on Monday January 18th 2010 at 11:35

Wim Dries, the new mayor of the city of Genk – where our research group is situated – organized a speech for some leading persons in the factory building of car brand Ford. The factory was the location for an official event of more than 550 persons, an ideal space for a speech about work and business. It is also an important statement by the mayor to bring all these important people to Ford, because there has been some discussions going on about the future of the organisation in Genk.

The mayor used the multitouch table we have been designing/rethinking with Z33 and EDM (University Hasselt) for some years now in the framwork of an EFRO research project, under the name Creating Spaces. It was nice to see our table “at work” in this different context.
