HoloTouch accepted into development program for high-tech start-ups

Holographic-type touchscreens gained some ground as HoloTouch Inc. has been selected to participate in a mentoring and development program for high-technology start-up companies.


Holographic-type touchscreens gained some ground as HoloTouch Inc. has been selected to participate in a mentoring and development program for high-technology start-up companies. The announcement was made by R. Douglas McPheters, president of HoloTouch, and Keith R. Reynolds, director of the Edwards & Angell FastTrack program of the Connecticut Technology Council (CTC). HoloTouch and other candidates were chosen following a recently completed vetting process.

FastTrack, CTC’s innovation business accelerator, was developed in conjunction with the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development and is sponsored by the law firm of Edwards & Angell LLP. The advisory and matching program helps connect start-ups that have innovative ideas with rapid growth and market potential to quickly gain seed-stage capital and develop business planning and relationships that succeed. The company’s mission is to create and mobilize an expert network of investors, advisors, professional services providers, and industry contacts who volunteer to help qualified start-up companies position for success and create new jobs.

HoloTouch’s BeamOne technology is seen by a standard PC as a keyboard, enabling an operator to enter commands by simply passing a finger through holographic images floating in the air 5 inches in front of the device. Said McPheters, “FastTrack offers potentially valuable assistance in connecting us with mentors and advisors. This collaboration can promote our partnering with companies who see value in our touchless, holographic actuation and control technology.”
