Multi-touch Screens - The Next Input Device?

This video is a very cool demo of work on multi-touch interaction at NYU. This research allows bi-manual, multi-point, and multi-user interactions on a graphical interaction surface. The potential for data exploration and visualization is tremendous. The beginning is more on the artistic side. Keep watching and you will see data manipulation, interaction with maps and spatial data, and exploration of network structures.
