Joshua gets a cool but nerdy no-prize for bringing us this "shape of things to come" video demonstrating a new type of user interface device. The multi-finger approach to touch screens is (as far as I know) new, and may neatly avoid the "gorilla finger" pitfall most common to other sorts of touch interfaces.
It does seem to take up a lot of room, though. And I wonder just how expensive it would be. Still, back in the 70s people thought the mouse and the GUI were too expensive and required too powerful a computer, and look how that turned out.
