Real Life Multitouch

Maybe this is a sign that I’ve been using my iPhone too much.


Chortle. Love it! :)

That’s one reflective bit of perspex mind you… :P

Hey. I think I have that app!

I mean this in the kindest way possible—you are such a geek.


Heh, I’ve totally tried to do that before, unintentionally. With much less success, of course.

This reminds me of those days when I pick up an actual pencil or paintbrush after weeks of digital art-making, and have to fight the muscle memory of Undo-ing every mistake.

This isn’t really the same thing as the last two posters, but have you stood in front of sink with your hands under the faucet waiting for the water to come on? Then, after an embarassing long time or after mutliple gesticulations you discover it has an actual valve…

Not to toot my own horn, but my husband gave me a Blackberry Curve for Christmas and I have yet to figure out how to check my email, let alone enable the much ballyhooed GPS. He’s highly annoyed that I haven’t yet read the directions, so I think it’s unlikely he’ll be getting me anything for Valentine’s Day.

Yes, you might have been using the iPhone too much… but I prefer to believe that the world around us needs a new OS.

Reminds me of the time I was sorting through my files and put something in the wrong place. Instead of refiling I thought “undo.”

Hey,thanks for the post.
Now i can show your blog to my friends,coz i must admit that they are also using they’re iPod too much.
Hope to see you on mine too..=)

iPhone’s rock but since their only on AT&T that limits their potential.

Anyway, this video is awesome. I have to admit I use my iTouch for everything.

Ooh, clever idea. Also, it makes me miss NYC.

Laugh of the day at the office. I just realized that I was trying to zoom and scroll people out of my office with two fingers. Thank you for making my day. Btw, a double click on the outer boxes to enlarge their details would be a nice thing for the next version.

Boy, I hope I’m not the only person who’s walked to the door of his house and pushed the unlock button on his car key.

HAHAHAHA. That’s real life LOL!

just a note: you can use double-tap for a quick zoom in.

That makes me think on this other video about interfaces: http://vimeo.com/4697849?pg=embed&sec=

How fast time flies! Now your February 12th predictions has (almost) come true: see Pattie Maes TED video demo of her MIT-project’s Sixth Sense wearable computer (incl. RL multi-no-touch scrolling of maps projected on a nearest wall; details here: http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/pattie_maes_demos_the_sixth_sense.html and FF-followup here: http://ff.im/5sjrP
