Multi-touch - the future is so, mmm, touchy.

In: stuff

I'm slightly surprised that Microsoft Surface - their amazing multi-touch vision of the future hasn't made a bigger impact. Is it just me? Surely a world where sticky fingers smeared on your pristine wide-screen was a good thing has to be welcomed... A world without ergonomic keyboards and RSI-inducing mice - it sounds fantastic! Even if it is microsoft. As an artist the idea of being able to draw straight onto the screen is really, really exciting, and the whole Minority Report style photo flicking thing is just so future-fantastic.
Maybe that's it - maybe it's all a bit Sci-fi. Maybe people just aren't ready.
Oh, OK, so I've been excited about this for ages - ever since I saw this fantastic Jeff Han demo of touch screen technology last-year (movie courtesy of TED). I'm ready - I love it. Bring it on. (OK, bring it on in a beautifully designed, twice-the-price, Apple version... but I'm still ready, waiting, credit card in hand.)
