Planar Helium Gets an Invite to Exclusive Windows 8 Insiders Party

Developers exploring Windows 8 on the Planar Helium Multi-touch Display
Planar 27" Helium™ Multi-touch Displays have attracted much attention since the launch of Windows 8. David Kelley, Principal Architect at Wirestone wrote the “giant 27-inch Planar Helium display really brings out the best in Windows 8.” Windows Phone Developer and Microsoft MVP, Kelly White, said in his blog: “After using the Helium I absolutely regret the HP TouchSmart monitors.” And Cindy Davis, Editor-in-Chief at TechDecisions, gave Helium the “best review I could give.”

On October 30th Helium got another kudos when I along with several Planar Helium displays were invited to Microsoft W8 Insiders Launch Party in Seattle Washington. The party was held on a cruise ship and this invitation only event included more than a hundred leading developers from around the world. Six Helium units were paired with W8 tablets to create “experiential zones” to show the latest Windows 8 apps. The attendees were encouraged to explore the apps through Helium and tweet about their impressions.

One of my favorite tweets came from Jake Poznanski who said “The #1 thing I've learned at the #BLDWIN #GenApp #DPE Boat Party is how cool the Planar displays are #Windows8.”

We couldn’t agree more, and we think once you experience Helium you will too. Helium is the perfect displays for pairing with a Windows 8 tablet, Ultrabook™ or PC. Its unique and beautiful design also makes it perfect in retails and kiosk locations.
