Surfaced before Microsoft surface !!!

In this demo, Jeff Han shows off (for the first time publicly) a high-resolution multi-touch computer screen that may herald the end of the point-and-click mouse. The demo, which drew spontaneous applause and audible gasps from the audience, begins with a simple lava lamp, then turns into a virtual photo-editing tabletop, where Han flicks photos across the screen as if they were paper snapshots. (The Apple iPhone, to be released a year later, also does multi-touch -- but only with two fingers.)

Here is his Video of an amazing technology

Jeff Han is a research scientist for NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. He demonstrates--for the first time publicly--his intuitive, "interface-free," touch-driven computer screen, which can be manipulated intuitively with the fingertips, and responds to varying levels of pressure.

A similar Technology developed by Microsoft, Microsoft Surface -

Isn't it Awesome !!
