Perceptive Pixel reinvents the human-computer interface

Remember this name: Perceptive Pixel, because you’ll be telling anyone who will listen about their kit for the next month. Last year at the TED conference, an NYU computer scientist named Jeff Han brought the house down with his multi-touch interface. He manipulated applications with the flawless, effortless touchy-feely ability that only a few years earlier was the sole realm of Chief John Anderton.

If you think Apples new Iphone touch screen is cool, then take a look at this. The iPhone’s new touch interface might be nice, but it’s nowhere near as involved as the future UI envisioned in Minority Report, where Tom Cruise could drag objects across the screen and manipulate them in all kinds of ways, or “push” them aside to bring up something new.
