Multitouch Screen: the Future of the Computer Interface

Pretty soon the way we use computers will change forever. Multi Touch screens like the ones in these videos will soon be commercially available. They eliminate the need for a mouse and even a keyboard. Instead, you interact with the screen directly. This totally changes the physiology of human computer interaction, and has exciting implications for the ergonomics of computer use.
