Touch displays are going to transform the way we use computers. MultiTouch, a Finland-based company, has just released a truly amazing modular based multi-touch display. They’re completely scalable, from the size of a laptop screen to screens that measure over 66 feet across — only your pocketbook will decide the size of your display. Each LCD screen is HD ready and can be built as a table or a wall unit. The multi-user system allows the direct use of hands to play games, sketch, manipulate, and play around with maps, pictures, and videos — no more mouses (or is it mice?). If you’ve watched CNN lately, you’ve probably seen the MultiTouch in action, moving around the electoral map. It really has to be seen to fully understand its capabilities.
