    Microsoft Research working on "any surface" touch screen - Neowin.net



    Science fiction movies and TV shows that show people using holographic touch interfaces on their PCs may be closer to reality than previously thought. The official Microsoft Research web site has announced that it has been working on two different types of touch interfaces. One of them is called OmniTouch and enables nearly any kind of surface to be used as an user interface.

    Microsoft's Hrvoje Benko said, "The surface area of one hand alone exceeds that of typical smart phones. Tables are an order of magnitude larger than a tablet computer. If we could appropriate these ad hoc surfaces in an on-demand way, we could deliver all of the benefits of mobility while expanding the user’s interactive capability."

    Naturally Apple will find a way to bring this to an iDevice by 2015 and take all the credit. Remember, Apple is allowed to use all MSFT patented inventions...

    Just hope that HP buys Apple. They can destroy any wireless device in less than 2 year.
