1.  Elo's New Online Marketing and Application Pages
----------------------------------------------------

Elo has added new online Marketing and Application pages to our 
Web site at http://www.elotouch.com. Users can click on the major 
touch markets and major touch applications, then drill down to 
Elo's individual touch solutions, including recommended products 
and helpful case studies.

2.  New 40" and 42" Gas Plasma Displays
---------------------------------------

Imagine our IntelliTouch surface wave technology on a 40" gas 
plasma screen, or our CarrollTouch infrared touchscreen 
technology on a 42" screen -- both at an affordable price. These 
large touch displays command attention in public environments 
and can display applications in portrait or landscape mode.

3.  How Elo's IntelliTouch Enhances Exhibits at J. Paul Getty 
    and Tech Museum of Innovation
-------------------------------------------------------------

The J. PAUL GETTY MUSEUM in Los Angeles, California created the 
ArtAccess System to help visitors tap into its vast collection. 
Featuring Elo's IntelliTouch surface wave touchscreens, the 28 
interactive kiosks place images, videos, voice, and text about 
5,000 objects and 1,200 artists at the visitors' fingertips. 

At the TECH MUSEUM OF INNOVATION in San Jose, California, 
visitors can "finger-paint" together on the Electronic Easel, a 
pair of 31-inch IntelliTouch touchscreens built into a safety 
glass lamination. Once two visitors have finished painting 
together, their artwork is combined and displayed on a large 
overhead projection screen.

-----------------------
4.  Elo's DVD Solutions
-----------------------

The DVD player is ideal for kiosks displaying multimedia 
applications: flexible and reliable, very low-maintenance, quick 
to produce and deploy, and easily updated. Elo offers touch 
solutions for today's popular Philips and Panasonic DVD players.

A Tennessee-based Elo TouchReady Partner, MARS INTERACTIVE, 
combines our AccuTouch resistive touchscreen technology on an 
Elo touchmonitor with a Panasonic VT400 DVD player to demonstrate 
the features and benefits of Sears' new Kenmore laundry system.

5.  Focus on Elo in Food Service
--------------------------------

At SPAGO RESTAURANTS, servers can enter customer orders, 
communicate them to the kitchen, and reconcile tabs -- all from 
one touch-enhanced workstation, powered by Elo's AccuTouch 
five-wire resistive touchscreen technology.

CHEVYS RESTAURANTS counts on Elo's AccuTouch touchscreen 
technology to provide speedy service and keep frequently changing 
menu choices up to date. Touchscreens make it easier for servers 
to place orders, so they can effectively serve more customers in 
less time.

http://www.elotouch.com/pdfs/chevys.pdf

At a new Taco Bell franchise in downtown Philadelphia, customers 
can place their own orders with the touch of a finger, using 
Elo's IntelliTouch surface wave touchscreen technology. This 
self-service innovation has eliminated long lines, even during 
the busy lunch-hour rush. And employees who used to take orders 
at a traditional cash register are now redeployed in the food 
preparation area, which has doubled in size.

6.  iMac with iTouch in the Medical Market
------------------------------------------

THE JACKSON GROUP chose Elo's iMac with iTouch "touch-on-tube" 
surface wave touchscreen technology as the interface for survey 
stations it sets up in hospitals and healthcare facilities, which 
it uses to gather feedback on employee and customer satisfaction.

Noted eye specialist DR. PETER VAN HOUTEN uses Elo's iMac with 
iTouch to maintain all his medical records -- from billing to 
entering or modifying insurance information. 

WESTERN DIORAMAS uses Elo's iMac with iTouch to provide hospitals 
with interactive informational displays that are intuitive and 
non-intimidating for patients, especially seniors.
