With Windows 7, WPF 4, Silverlight 4, and the road paved by our multi-touch handheld devices, Multi-touch is really hitting mainstream.

While at MIX10, I spoke with Josh Blake about NaturalShow, his multi-touch not-PowerPoint presentation approach, written in WPF. Josh uses multi-touch to navigate through a really clever way of presenting material. I'd try and describe it, but it's really best if you watch it.

    Hi, which laptop are you using in this demo, does the screen support more than two touch points? Is it capacitive or resistive?

    Thanks for any info, trying to locate hardware for some multi-touch development (we have two point touch devices currently).

    Hi Kim,


    The device is an HP tx2z with a capacitive screen with four touch points (with the March n-trig driver update). HP has a new model, tm2, that replaced the tx2z. I have not tested the tm2 but I assume it is similar or better quality than the tx2z.
