Interactive surfaces are all the rage right now, and excitement is stirring as we find out that these futuristic devices may not be so futuristic after all. It was announced today that the Perceptive Pixel Interactive Media Wall will be readily available at Nieman Marcus.

The Perceptive Pixel invention "Allows you to navigate, locate, and manipulate information by touching anywhere on the screen," according to New Launches. "Tap out a sonata with your fingertips, flip through manuscripts with the swipe of your hand, or crop photos with a pinch; it responds to grand gestures or the lightest touch with finesse."

It will be available a few months before the release of the Microsoft Touch.
