Cool new input device

13 02 2006

Here’s a video of a new type of multi-input touch screen. I wasn’t aware of it, but with the current technology, touch screens allow only one input (finger) at a time. This will make possible, assuming it ever turns into a consumer device, a whole new raft of human-computer interaction modes (do you remember Minority Report?).

In any case, the video is mesmerizing and it makes you realize how clumsy and limited the mouse is. Even tablets aren’t much better.

Hat tip: Jeremy.
