These are my notes from the session The Future of Interfaces Is Multi-Touch by Jeff Han.

These was mainly a demo of touch screen computing with a screen that supported multiple points of contact. Touchscreens and applications today only support a single point of contact (i.e. the current location of the mouse pointer). There is a lot of potential that can be explored when a touchscreen that supports multiple points of contact at once is used. For example, truly collaborative computer usage between multiple people is possible.

Most of the content of the talk can be gleaned from the MultiTouch Interaction Research video on YouTube. Since I had already seen the video, I zoned out during most of the talk.
