<div>Just wonderign if any body knows for sure if apple has a pattent on their multi touch technology. check out this video on google.</div>

<div>Very impressive stuff. I mean I am sure that this would probably be a lot of processing for the neo, but just looking at the video there are so many things that you can imagine you could do with this technology. This would be a perfect peice of technology for an open community. If it is pattented then I can't wait until someone else comes up with a similar technology. I counted that they had as many as 10 touches on the same panel at one time. I wonder if they just use some kind of sectioning or something. Any way's I am just curious. That and the voice control could change the way we interace with things. I have always thought that the interface between human and machine has developed very slowly. I mean the mouse and key board have been around for ever and they are still the standard method of communicating with a machine. Just thought I would post this question here as every one here seems to be very knowledgable about this kind of thing.
