If you’re an über-geek, you probably spent waaay to much money on an iPhone. (I admit, I’m guilty as charged) Is it so ? It wouldn’t surprise me that you got pulled across because of it’s fancy multi-touch user interface.

It gets more interesting though…

Microsoft, together with HTC, demonstrated what they call “SideSight”.

A set of Infrared emitters/receivers embedded in the side of a handheld device, “looking” (hence “…Sight”) sideways and detecting finger movement.

The device could even be covered whole the way around to enhance the experience.

Interesting for small screen PDA’s and certainly an alternative for the stylus-operated handhelds.

This technology could even allow you to scroll up & down with your left finger while you’re typing with the right hand…
