Multi touch sensitive screen research


Recommended Posts

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.


I want mine now! :cry:

Looks pretty cool for a little toy, But I'm sure someone can make up some UI for it that would be really slick

Do you really need a user interface though with a system like that? To me, this sort of seems to be drifting away from UI's and towards more intuitive functions with your body rather than a 'tool -> button -> result' sort of thing. I'd imagine there would be some simple interface for more advanced programs, but I think most of the functions would be performed based on things like the speed, pressure, direction, motion etc. of your fingers.

But I dunno really :P

One of the coolest things I've seen in awhile, anyway. The track in the video is pretty cool, I've heard it on 'The Animatrix' dvd menu.
