Multitouch goes large 9 March, 2007

Posted by Jay Ball in I want one.

Regardless of where you stand on the iPhone, it was hard to remain unimpressed by the demo of the multitouch screen. Watching Steve Jobs pinching photos smaller and bigger was a real oooo moment. (Although, putting it that way makes it sound a little underwhelming.)

Now, it looks like we might get this technology on a large scale. Jeff Han, one of the brains behind multitouch has created a new company Perceptive Pixel to develop large screen versions of the technology. You can see a pretty mesmerising video here:

You can also see Jeff demonstrating the technology back in February 2006 at TED.

I badly want some of this. It makes our write-on walls at Banner seem pretty lame by comparison. Of course, I’d probably just spend hours re-sorting my virtual desk and pinching things to all different sizes. Fun though.
