Multi-Touch Screens...The Future Is Here!

Of course, the "future" is likely too expensive for most of us, but here's a new investment goal, at least!

Desc: Multi-touch screens, where multiple fingers are tracked individually, and some of the applications of this technology.

I really, really want one of those.

I can't think of any good reason why. All I know is that I really, really, really want one of those.

I'm with jwoody... no good reason other than the gadget gene that lives in my head.

Minory Report here we come. Very nice. That'd be a blast of a project.

It's always been sad how our computer hands become a set of slow, overworked, 2D switches. Given the right sensors and feedback they can express so much more.

First thing I'd try is that crappy flash thing where you grab that chick's arse and watch it wobble.

Have a think about how this would impact the computing world - all our software based around one input (ie, everything except some multiple-axis games) would need redesigning to benefit. Certainly a massive undertaking. I've got high hopes, though.

These women just don't understand...
