Touch Table Interface

Applied Minds, a highly cool company in California headed by a former Disney creative leader, has released a video demonstrating their Touch Table interface. Basically, the table, which is shareable over the web in real-time, allows for natural gestures with your hands to act as a kind of mouse to control the interface.

The demo video shows users navigating a satellite map by either sliding their hands together across the table (zoom out) or apart (zoom in). The table can also overlay a touch screen like interface that allows the user to dig down into further levels of non-graphical data.
