The healing (multi)touch

Filed under: — mlazoff

Multitouch, the new input technology familiar to iPhone users and fans of the film Minority Report, allows for manipulation of graphic images by user gesturing with one or more fingers, usually on a screen but also a table top or laptop touchpad. An article in today’s Wall Street Journal by columnist Walter Mossberg provides WSJ subscribers with background information and a fun video demonstrating the technology. For non-subscribers, all of Mossberg’s articles are freely available online under the Personal Technology section of All Things Digital, a wonderful blog-type Web site sponsored by WSJ.
