'Guten Touch' is an interactive art installation created by Multitouch Barcelona for the Red Bull Music Academy to prove that advanced technology and old-fashioned human interaction can exist as one in the same social sphere.

'Guten Touch' consists of two projected displays and a multitouch wall. There are three primary activities viewers can participate in: throwing foam balls to play 'Space Invaders,' creating a virtual pixelated painting using a brush and manipulating a digital object using their hands.

The idea behind each 'Guten Touch' activity, according to Multitouch Barcelona, is that the line between the physical world and the digital one is blurred.
