Graphics, User Interfaces I's time for another "OSNews Asks", a blatant rip-off of just about every other website in existence. Anyway, today we want to focus on multitouch. The technology behind it has existed for a long time, but only recently have companies like Apple (iPhone, trackpads) and Microsoft (Surface, Windows 7) begun promoting it. We have a question for you, about multitouch in desktops and laptops.

Here's my concept of a future "Touchbook".

For myself I very much dislike to touch the screen in front of me because it's not very ergonomic. But replacing the hardware keyboard with a virtual one and adding some Multitouch might be very handy...

virtual keyboards dont work for volume typing because it hurts your hands
