Multi-Touch Interaction Research
And I though that they idea of 3D windows systems was a good one. This is exciting. It just blows it away! Maybe it could even spell the end of the mouse. The video (all 16 MB of it) is just an amazing intro to how such a multi-fingered touch screen would work. Though it may have to come with some wipes to clean off the remains of lunch or the icing from some cake before starting work. Perhaps some gloves with pointy tips on the ends of the finger for that fine detailed work on the screen. But two handed work is a great idea as you can touch an icon with one hand while pointing and doing other nifty stuff with the other hand. A bit like having two or more mice.
