Multitouch

Are you getting tired of that old SmartBoard in the classroom? Jeff Han’s experimental multi touch interface is now for sale as a product similar to the Microsoft Surface, however, this one is an eight foot by three foot screen. They are selling it through an upscale store in the U.S. for the bargain basement price of $ 100,000 so start saving your allowance. Here is a video that shows off the features of the Online Only Media Wall. Although the price of this new multi touch technology is very expensive, if it catches on we could begin seeing an increase in the number of products using touch technology (like the touch ipod) and a decrease in the costs. In the meantime, don’t get rid of your mouse and keyboard just yet.
