Multi-Touch and Apple



Apple Multi-TouchPC Joint has uncovered an Apple patent application regarding Multi-Touch. What really caught my eye was this description from Apple:

Identification and classification of intuitive hand configurations and motions enables unprecedented integration of typing, resting, pointing, scrolling, 3D manipulation, and handwriting into a versatile, ergonomic computer input device.

PC Joint gives a good list of scenarios based on how this new Multi-Touch would look on a potential Mac Tablet, including:

  • Have to write or draw something? Just pretend you hold a stylus or pen in your hand and start writing/drawing.
  • If that is still not good enough, pick up the real stylus and start writing with it.
