Technology Briefs - Multi-touch from Wacom

New multi-touch technology is impressive. Wacom and Toshiba and even Microsoft with Windows 7 are bringing out some new tech that could revolutionize the way that consumers interact. The spatial interface where the user never physically touches the screen is impressive. Here are some You Tubes displaying them.

Interesting capacitive touch solution (glove touch, high noise immunity, very stable calibration) that is launching now and there is a roadmap for projected capacitive multi-touch as well (don't know why this would be interesting for kiosks, maybe digital signage, but there is a lot of hype that seems to be driving some significant OEMs in this direction
