The Future Of Technology – Are Touch Screens As We Currently Know Them On Their Way Out?

Touch Screen TechnologyIt is possible that touch screens could soon be a thing of the past, replaced by a new technology, Digital Overlay.  This technology has been developed by iQ by Intel and PSFK Labs, making virtually any flat surface an interactive screen!

The technology, although still new, looks very promising and is bound to find the attention of any techno-geek. Opening up apps on your hand, dialing a phone number from your arm, or not even having to use a tv remote because any surface can become your TV remote are not far off.

OmniTouch, a project that was developed by Microsoft along with Carnegie Mellon University’s Human Computer Interaction Institute is one demonstration of this new Digital Overlay technology trend.
