neat idea but geez, i little like creating ceramic tiles that will withstond 3000 degrees and only use them as pot holders all the while sitting around saying, "i wish there were something we could put on the bottom of a spacecraft to keep the heat off the ship."

i'm getting more hopeful. They are putting gestures into conventional touchpads, and gradually making the touch pads bigger. They're patenting plans for a gesture-based tablet pc. Now a gesture-based ipod. It seems to me that they're really running with this multitouch gesture-technology, using it across their product line, even expanding their product line.

That video was pretty cool; and it showed the map zooming and multitouch gesturing that was discussed in the article and patent for the tablet PC, so hopefully that was Apple tech (as was stated). I hope Mr. Jobs is dreaming of gesture input every night. I also hope Westerman and Elias got a truckload of $s, because Apple is definitely cashing in.
