More on Jeff Han and the touch screen

Quite a bit of talk about touch screens these days. But this is seriously cool technology, so here is a detailed article about Jeff Han and a new video where he demonstrate his amazing multi touch screen:

At summer camp, Jeff hot-wired golf carts for nocturnal joy rides and fixed fellow campers’ busted Walkmen in exchange for soda pop. He studied violin “like any good Asian kid.” He was 12 when he built his first laser.

As mentioned here before I met Jeff Han and was able to test his screen during Siggraph in Boston last year. I can only confirm that the screen is just as amazing as it looks like in this video!

  2. When do you think we can buy the consumer equivalent at our local computer store?

    If Oyvind is right, anytime soon…

    Not replace. Not at all. But assist. Keyboard, mouse and multi touch.

    Is there someone who knows what type of program you can see on the screen 48 seconds into the movie? It says Kingdom Animalia in the top of the program.
