Stamford, Connecticut, January 28, 2011 – R. Douglas McPheters, President of HoloTouch, Inc., announced today that its widely patented HoloTouch technology has been selected by GE edgelab for its vendor demonstration and evaluation program.  To further that collaboration, the company loaned edgelab a customized example of HoloTouch technology for demonstration and evaluation by GE senior management, students and the general public, an intuitive, touchless switch with no moving parts that is shown at the right.

Located within the Stamford, Connecticut campus of the University of Connecticut, edgelab is a state-of-the-art, information technology and e-business facility that works with students, faculty and business executives in an environment that promotes new ideas, solutions to real business problems and feedback through cutting-edge research and curricula development.  Edgelab bridges the gap between academic research and applied corporate practice in a graduate research facility that melds capability of senior faculty, GE executives, business students and public-private partnerships.

McPheters observed, “working with edgelab offers excellent opportunities for enhanced collaboration with GE senior management, UConn students and faculty and members of the general public and press interested in “over-the-horizon” technologies that bring competitive advantages to companies that adopt them such as HoloTouch technology.”
