#1709: RemoTouch

People looking through shop windows at items for sale frequently want to get a better view of the product in question.

Today’s invention is a transparent touch screen, attached to a shop window, which allows a window shopper to indicate, using the by-now familiar gestures, which product they would like to see and then to bring it closer, spin it around etc.

Small products such as watches etc could be mounted on a standard motorised base unit for a couple of pounds each. This would allow them to be manipulated remotely through the glass.

When not being actively viewed, the motorised display stands could randomly bring an item up to the glass and slowly turn it (in coordination with directable spotlights in the window) so as to draw people’s attention.
