Check out Jeff Han’s demonstration from the 2006 TED (Technology Entertainment Design) event in Monterey California. This has amazing possibilities for design, photography and mapping applications. All I want to know is when can I buy one. Thanks to Don for the tip.
Jeff Han is a research scientist for New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. Here, he demonstrates—for the first time publicly—his intuitive, “interface-free,” touch-driven computer screen, which can be manipulated intuitively with the fingertips, and responds to varying levels of pressure.
