Multi-touchPosted: January 24, 2007
I remember watching the scenes from Minority Report where the main character played by Tom Cruise used special gloves to interact by touch with a virtual screen. It was pretty darn cool. While I’m sure there was some research community working on touch sensitive screens at the time, I’d never heard of or seen anything like it before.
Fast forward to 2006 where Apple launches the iPhone and suddenly touch very hip and been introduced to the mainstream. I stumbled across a researcher doing work for commercial applications of touch. The video (in Quicktime) on his site is pretty amazing. YouTube version of the same video.
The future looks exciting.
