New digital light table app couples a multi-touch surface with Google Docs-style work tools.

During our Future of Work series, Industrial Color gave us an exclusive look at their recently released digital LightTable. The app employs the touch table from Samsung and Microsoft, giving users the ability to interact with images, video and mock-ups stored on the cloud-based GLOBALedits media software. Using the 360-degree multi-user touch screen — aimed to give creatives the tactile experience akin to a light table or editing room — and making use of the gesture commands that people have learned from Tablet interaction, users are able to mark-up approve, kill and design layouts as many professional would in the analog world.
