Estate agent unveils Kenya’s first interactive touch screen window display

There is a new technology in town, one that transforms a window’s glass surface into a touch screen, the latest technology in touch sensitive display.

According to the American estate agency firm that has invested in this technology, this interactive window is making property searches and market information easier and more accessible, since clients can get the information they need even after office hours.

The firm, Coldwel Banker, recently launched the technology in Kenya as its first entry point into Africa.

It is enabled by a projection foil which is applied directly to a glass surface, for instance a window, and a projector mounted from behind to make an interactive projection display.

“This demonstrates the new level of advances in technology that Coldwell Banker, Kenya, is bringing to the East African real estate sector, with innovation that spans into real estate management systems, marketing tools and activities, and customer-centric services,” noted Ms Daniella Callaway, the managing director of the firm.

Real estate is where wealth will grow in 2016, says firm in report

Real estate is the best investment option this year even though politics will play a major role in determining returns from other key sectors.

Cytonn Investments 2016 Outlook Report released in Nairobi on Monday says local and foreign investors will continue reaping handsome returns since growth of the middle class and continued urbanisation create a growing demand for both residential and commercial developments across the country.

Cytonns is a real estate investments company that currently manages a Sh4 billion asset portfolio and has ongoing projects worth Sh50 billion.

The Cytonn investments manager, Mr Maurice Oduor, expressed optimism that if Kenya keeps politics out of development and business matters, a 5.5 per cent to 6.5 per cent growth is achievable.

“It is only President Uhuru (Kenyatta) and Deputy President William Ruto, who are politicians, while the rest are purely civil servants whose task is to deliver services to fellow Kenyans,” he said.
