Charlotte touchscreen maker's tech featured on CBS This Morning

Charlotte-based touchscreen maker T1Visions made its way in front of a national audience last Friday when its tech was featured on "CBS This Morning." (watch the segment here)

Marco Ventura, T1V's vice president of
business development, poses with the
interactive retail tables, currently in
three flagship Neiman Marcus stores.
In a story about how mega-retailer Neiman Marcus is using technology to innovate and draw more customers, company execs showed off interactive retail tables in the shoe salon that allows customers to peruse the store's in-store and out-of-store inventory and add items to their favorites wishlist.

At the 2 minutes 31 seconds mark, CBS reporter Ben Tracy describes the tables as "interactive tables that work like a giant iPad."

These are the same tables we blogged about last month, and they're the same tables that will be the centerpiece in this week's ShopTalk, both in print and online.

While T1Visions wasn't mentioned by name, the company did tweet its five seconds of morning news show fame.

To learn more about how T1Visions landed the deal with Neiman Marcus, read ShopTalk online on Tuesday or in Wednesday's Observer.
