Interesting...'Surface Computing' with multi-touch enhancements, good find chip. I like the ability to lay your cam or cell on the screen and instantly extract what's inside, be nice if the screen were upright rather than flat and horizontal.

I've seen a few different multi-touch computing, this is of course Microsoft's 'surface'. I've seen one displayed on a wall, which looked very cool as well. The wall one looks better for not have grubby fingers all over it, which I feel is going to be the main barrier for some time yet  :P
