Mind-Blowing TouchScreen Company Launches
The Google Earth Blog carries the news that Jeff Han, who developed a truly amazing multi-touch screen interface at NYU, is now commercializing the product through his new company, Perceptive Pixel. Fast Company has a great piece on Han, and there’s a bandwidth-intensive video to watch, which shows some pretty mind-blowing stuff. When I first started hearing about these things last spring I was drooling over them, and they only seem to have gotten cooler since then. Little word yet on pricing, though Fast Company notes that there are already competitors out there. These include Microsoft (at around $50,000) and perhaps even Apple. Han has already sold a screen to the military for six figures, however. Now all I need is a little extra cash.
