The FalaComigo Project combines the most modern Information and Communication
Technology with simple, objective speech and raises awareness to safeguard heritage.
This National Strategic Reference Framework (QREN)-funded partnership initiative has
brought together the University, Corporate and Heritage Management Sectors.

Using the Palace of Monserrate as a reference, multimedia products were created which
integrate interactive virtual characters with speech recognition and synthesis,
incorporated into modern support equipment with attractive, ergonomic lines specially
designed to harmoniously blend into museum spaces.

September 19th, 2009 by NearInteraction

September saw NearInteraction as the TEDxEdges Chromium Sponsor proudly contributing to the conference that took place in Lisbon.

Throughout the duration of the event, TEDxEdges featured an innovative multi-touch application developed by NearInteraction, in collaboration with Pacifica and The Others, which allowed the participants real-time navigation of all the comments shared through the Twitter platform. The multi-touch table, presented by NearInteraction at TEDxEdges, is an unique hardware that allows multi-user interaction through touch, combined with graphics and visual information displayed directly on the surface.
