    Mac OS XI? As in Mac OS 11?
    What does a multi touch interface have to do with OSX(I)?
    The lemur is cool, BTW.

    The visual interface of the linked product is similar to speculation about Apple's next OS/tech.

    Yes, as in OS Eleven. With all the rumors about a new touch screen interface, this might, in all serious, be a good ides for developers to get and mod to get an idea of where computer interfaces are headed.

    I'm unsure if it will catch on. I remember using this tech on Acorn computers a good ten years ago and it never became popular. Maybe the market wasn't ready.

    And the thing about using more than one fingre at a time. This has been around for quite a while. I have used audio mixing consoles where you can move different things at the same time, even twist your finger and it will turn a pot on the screen. :confused:

    Alpine came out with touch screen displays that give sensor feedback to your finger tips. "it touches you back".
