A Better, Cheaper Multitouch Interface

In this video, the researchers demonstrate a few applications that could be incorporated with their pressure-sensitive touch pad, dubbed the UnMousePad. The researchers connect the pad to a computer and display to create a map of the intensity and location of pressure points. The pad can also be used to draw with fingers, write with a stylus, sculpt virtual globes, and control electronic musical equipment.
