PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft and Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs in Cambridge demoed their nifty NanoTouch, a small device fitting in the palm of one's hand, boasting a 2.4 inch screen and a touch pad on the back so as to utilize the small screen without having to block it with one's fingers. The developers say this technology could develop into electronic jewelry and high-tech clothing, though that NanoTouch looks an awful lot like one of those iPods or Zunes we keep hearing about. Anyone up for a touch-t-shirt with customizable images on front and back? You'd never have to buy another shirt again.

Familiar concept

Sounds familiar:

Still not convinced it's a good idea though, since it makes holding the device difficult, particularly for one-hand operation.
