Multi-touchscreens

You wouldn’t think adding more than one touchpoint would change the utility of touchscreens much. Watch this video and think again. It’s been clear for a while that our processors and storage capacities have outstripped our human-comuter interface. I can see getting a lot done with a touchscreen that really worked this quickly and effectively. Very cool.

    When I saw this I thought of my beloved wacom tablets, of which I have three. I thought of how few people use them, despite their power and flexability. And I wonder… with the multi-touch screens fail because no one has much a sense as to what they might be used for–speaking about the general consumer–or will they fly because it is ‘finger painting’! I am hopeful that it is the latter.

    That’s some pretty impressive stuff. To me, it looks like something that would be particularly useful in it’s full glory, as shown in the video, in specific settings such as medical technology, design and entertainment. Like tablet PCs, it seems like a nifty idea, but probably not across the board.

    Regardless, I wonder what ergonomic issues may arise out of such a technology, particularly used on such a large screen.
