Another blog named Digital Digressions (nuts, and it looks like she used it first, too) points to a video demo of a touch screen with multiple contact points. This is the interface I want! Everything on the screen responds to touch. You can move things around, zoom or resize, stretch, pull, and “play” with objects on the screen using both hands. I think something like this will be a big part of future computer interfaces, perhaps combined with thin, flexible displays. I can’t wait.
Now I just need a more original name for my own site.
