I posted a video some time back, I can’t even find it myself so here is it:
I was very impressed back then, apparently the multi-touch technology has been patented by Apple.
May 30th, Microsoft announced their new product, the Surface Computer:
The technology seems similar, which leads to the issue of who holds the patent now. Anyway, more importantly, this new demostration of the technology makes it more applicable and real in today’s world. If Surface Computers were to become main-stream, it’d seem life is about to become very cool very soon. The stuff from Minority Report and such would no longer to something of Sci-fi.
