During the 1970s, technology helped to facilitate our lives with
the invention of the electronic touch interface. Since then, the
growing market for products using touch screen technology, such as
handheld devices and ATM’s, has encouraged innovators to advance
the technology to a multi-touch screen interaction. The
development of multi-touch screen interaction allows the use of
more than one finger on the screen, such as chording, and allows
multiple users to interact simultaneously. As seen in the movie,
Minority Report, multi-touch screen interaction leads to infinite
possibilities! In fact, this movie inspired engineers to use a
similar technology to help with information overloads in the
military and government agencies. The latest products with this
technology include Sony’s EyeToy:a camera used to incorporate a
person’s movement into a videogame, and Apple’s new iPhone,
allowing for multi-gestures on the screen. Besides being an
extraordinarily useful and efficient tool, multi-touch interface
is extremely entertaining an fun to use!
