AwesomeTouch

AwesomeTouch develops software for large-format touch screens for public places.

The company’s initial product is a multitouch wayfinding application. It can be customized for public locations like cities, shopping malls, and college campuses. The “AwesomeMap” app provides users with a pinch-to-zoom map graphic, tappable points-of-interest, and a calendar aggregated from web-based sources. The company’s goal is to enable non-smartphone users to experience location-based web services while in public places.

AwesomeTouch is also developing a whiteboard product for the education space and a configurator application for the retail shopping market.

The company was formed out of a trio of University of Kentucky engineering student design projects in the spring of 2010. The company found its first customer in the Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau, converting an existing paper map into an interactive map with potential for a greater number of points-of-interest.
