LifeSize Touch, based in Merseyside, is pioneering ‘social furniture’ for hotels, estate agents, visitor centres and retailers using ‘through-glass’ touchscreen technology.

Frank Smith, managing director of Context, said: “Through-glass touchscreen technology opens up a wide range of applications where people can access information, entertainment or news in a form that is robust enough for public locations.

“Our brief is to promote this innovative technology initially in the property, hospitality and retail markets through both PR and social media.”
