I was blown away by Jeff Han’s presentation of multi-touch user interfaces today. Amazing stuff really. Using a touch screen you are now able to completely change the way you interact with your computer. Think Tom Cruise in Minority Report.
A few things that multi-touch technology will change:
- Maps – the military implications are enormous
- Gaming – the face of gaming will change forever – imagine faster interaction than ever before and more interactive than ever before
- Image organization – so much faster. zoom, organize, sort, you name it.
I’m just scratching the surface here, wait until the engineers get ahold of this!
NOTE: You really need to watch the video to see how powerful this is
