Microsoft buys Perceptive Pixel

Microsoft has acquired Perceptive Pixel, leaders in research, development and production of high-performance multi-touch platforms.

Perceptive Pixel came into the limlight, when in 2007 it shipped its first multi-touch workstations and large wall solutions, and gained widespread recognition for transforming the way CNN covered the historic 2008 U.S. Presidential election.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced during the its Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto on Monday that the company is acquiring Perceptive Pixel, a multi-touch interface provider for workstations and walls.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Its patented technology is used across a wide variety of industries, including broadcast, government, defense, energy exploration, higher education, engineering and product design today. The company is a privately held company with headquarters in New York City.
