"Interface-Free" Touch Screen at TED: "Jeff Han, an NYU researcher, has recently shown off his 'interface free' touch screen technology at the TEDTalks in Monterey. Some sweet innovation that I hope makes it to the mainstream soon." The photo manipulation interface is reminiscent of "Minority Report."
I think this is pretty amazing technology. It is time for mainstream user interfaces to move forward in terms of intuitiveness. Between Apple's multi-touch display on the new iPhone and this, I hope we are seeing the first cracks in the old paradigms for screens and associated user interfaces.
