Multi-touch driven touch-screen technology similar to Minority Report might not be a distant reality !

I just came upon a really cool video demonstrating an amazing touch-screen technology that’ll soon go into mass production. The video distinctly reminds you of the movie, Minority Report. In the video, Jeff Han and Phil Davidson demonstrate how a multi-touch driven computer screen might change the way we work

What remains to be seen is how cost-effective this new technology will be and how soon it’s integrated into our present home computing paraphernalia. It can definitely act as a terrific visualisation aid in large presentation environments.

All said and done this could prove to be an invaluable tool for data analysts in large-scale explorations leading to a deeper understanding of the relationships between various entities.

    Now that’s very cool, and very impressive.

    It’d have to be a completely new way to operate with computers, it will take a bit of skill to make that work in a laptop form factor but for it to take off at home you’d need to have a major revolution in the way people see objects in their computers.

    The other fact remains, the vast majority of home computer users will still have one window open on MySpace, if they use a mouse or multi touch
