Multitouch screens on everyday surfaces

Thanks to researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, you too can be just like Tom Cruise in Minority Report, sort of. All you need is a Microsoft Kinect strapped on your shoulder, CMU’s fancy finger-tracking software, a portable projector, and some other stuff I don’t understand (A.K.A. magic). It’s called OmniTouch – “a novel wearable system that enables graphical, interactive, multitouch input on arbitrary, everyday surfaces.”

Screens? Where we’re going we don’t need screens. And with that, my guest posting on HSA comes to an end. Farewell, internet friends.
