minority_reportSchematic is showing off its Touchwall, a giant multi-touch video screen, at the 2009 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival.

The Touchwall measures 12 feet long by five feet high and gives attendees touch access to the complete festival program, 3D maps of the event and surrounding area, and information on local restaurants and bars.

But as an indication of its future capabilities, the Touchwall also enables attendees to schedule meetings with each other and to trade contact information over email.
