Microsoft "Microsoft and Perceptive Pixel Inc. (PPI) today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Microsoft will acquire PPI, a recognized leader in research, development and production of large-scale, multi-touch display solutions." Yes, Jeff Han is now a Microsoft employee. This demo still amazes me - from 2006. Before the iPhone. Before Android. Before the iPad. Remember that the next time you wind up in a discussion about who supposedly invented what.

I follow what you're saying so no diagram is required (thanks for the offer though).

Actually, you've raised some interesting points there - to the point of nearly convincing me (it's a real pity I can't up vote once I've posted).

I don't think there's necessarily a "right" or "wrong" answer though, at least not without building a prototype and testing it (sadly it's above my level too). I do think you're right about the huge potential of using such a solution for larger surfaces though (if it's not already in wide-spread use).
