Multi-Touch Computing Interface [ What's New | Top ]

Jefferson Han has developed a new multi-touch sensitive display and user interface that must be seen to be believed. Similar technology is already being used in the touch pads on Apple notebook computers which can sense if two fingers are touching the pad instead of one. Two fingers can scroll up, down, left, and right, while a single touch will click or select. The multi-touch technology is also seen in the new Apple phone. Jefferson Han's device uses a huge plasma display. Take a look below. You can read more on the website. (20070216fr1735)

Jefferson Han is a fan of ambient techno music. The ambient music soundtrack to this video is the song "Beautiful Strange (Bedrock's Ambient Beats)" which is track 5 on the album Beautiful Strange by the group Bedrock which is John Digweed and Nick Muir. This information was not easy to find and the only two words from the song are beautiful and strange. So, it was only after a Google search on these words and some other text that eventually led to the song and then ordering the CD from a vendor since it isn't readily available in stores or anywhere online. The soundtrack to the video actually begins at about 1 minute and 15 seconds into the song. [Research provided by Gregory Paul Johnson of Resources for Life]
