Multi-Touch: Touch Screen of the future? Cool video
While touch sensing is commonplace for single points of contact, multi-touch sensing enables a user to interact with a system with more than one finger at a time, as in chording and bi-manual operations. Such sensing devices are inherently also able to accommodate multiple users simultaneously, which is especially useful for larger interaction scenarios such as interactive walls and tabletops.

That is very impressive. :ww:
What kind of screen is that? What kind of hardware to support it?
I don't think it is faster to work with though. Most office apps will still be completed faster with a keyboard.
Mind you, I think they could easily add a virtual keyboard on the screen which could stretch to fit the users hands!

This I got from the link:
" Our technique is force-sensitive, and provides unprecedented resolution and scalability, allowing us to create sophisticated multi-point widgets for applications large enough to accomodate both hands and multiple users.
The drafting table style implementation shown here measures 36"x27", is rear-projected, and has a sensing resolution of better than 0.1" at 50Hz. Stroke event information is sent to applications using the lightweight OSC protocol over UDP. "
