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!

It’s by far the coolest piece of technology I’ve ever seen. When do you think we can buy the consumer equivalent at our local computer store? 🙂
Are these guys just joking with us!
Bet I never will get anything like that in my livingroom, but it looked pretty….no fantastic!
I still think this type of thing isn’t going to replace the keyboard and mouse anytime soon, if ever. But it definitely has some very powerful applications in numerous niches.
If Oyvind is right, anytime soon…
Not replace. Not at all. But assist. Keyboard, mouse and multi touch.
It might be usefull for people who have a tablett og does photoediting/drawings etc.
But I don’t think the remote will do the job also in the future!
This is the best technology I have ever seen!! 😉 I want one of those 😉
Here is another video – I donÂ´t know if you have seen it before 🙂
Here is one more of this wonder 😉
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.
