Microsoft Research demos multi-touch laptop prototype


Hot on the heels of the Microsoft Surface computer comes the Cambridge kids from Microsoft Research with their latest creation. Steve Hodges’ Dell laptop now sports multi-touch input, courtesy of a small collection of infrared sensors attached to the rear of the display. The video in Long Zheng’s post shows the usual pinching and sliding, along with some input from a traditional remote control.
