Last fall, Jeff Han demonstrated a multi-touch large screen interface, to allow you to interface to a computer through touch, at TED Talks (check out last year’s video of his presentation). Now, Jeff has formed a company called Perceptive Pixel to bring this idea to market. He was interviewed by Fast Company and they have released this really awesome video demonstrating even more applications including Google Earth being used with a wall-sized touch screen:
This is a truly inspiring demonstration. It quickly captivates the mind about the opportunities, but if you watch closely you realize Jeff has truly come up with some innovative human-computer interaction concepts. via OgleEarth who, like me, can’t wait to try this out!
