Tools to come: Dimond Touch


Check out this cool website and video:

I really like the idea of just grabbing stuff on a computer screen and moving them around. But that's not what excites me. What I really like is the fact that you can use two hands. Ever sense I was a kid I thought that computers should and would eventually come with two mice. You have two hands after all, wouldn't it be easer to keep one mouse on the tool and the other doing your animation? I'm still surprised that it hasn't happened yet.

Apparently Apple has already patented this technology for their much rumored/debated up coming tablet pc:

I hope to see this technology soon!

(Thanks to puffarthur at Tablet Buzz for showing this to me)
