Dell chooses Kiwi touchscreen tech

07 Dec 10

Unlimited Realities’ Fingertapps fleet of applications was licensed by Dell in September for use in its desktop computers that are shipping now.

At a recent meeting in Auckland, the Palmerston North firm said there’s a growing need for software that enabled rich, multi-touch interactions on the latest hardware. It's with this vision in mind that the firm aims to build on its successful start with Dell.

“Dell is putting our software into the hands of millions of people around the world. Now everyone knows who we are and what we’re capable of. As touch screen PCs become more and more common, we’ll be the first cab off the rank meeting those customers needs with great software,” said Product Marketing Manager, James Bell-Booth.

The 30-strong team is now working on Fingertapps applications for touchscreen PCs, tablets and other devices.

“It’s often said in New Zealand that we can do anything, and we’re out there proving that point,” said Founder and CTO David Brebner. “We’re doing international product development that can’t be matched – even by the guys with billion-dollar bank balances. What really gets me excited is growing our business and growing the computer graphics industry here in New Zealand at the same time.”

Brebner said that the start-up benefitted heavily from strong government and sector support from the likes of New Zealand Trade and Enterprise.
