Muti Touch and iPhone

Time:14:35 Mon,11-2012

The iPhone uses Multi Touch technology. FingerWorks has been bought by Apple in June 2006. Jeff Han has not been hired by Apple to work on the iPhone. There were rumors that Apple had tried (unsuccessfully) to hire Jeff at one point to work on the launch of the iphone. NY Times techie David Pogue even asked Steve Jobs about him on the day of the launch. Here's Jeff Hans' response on the iPhone: "The iPhone is absolutely gorgeous, and I've always said, if there ever were a company to bring this kind of technology to the consumer market, it's Apple. I just wish it were a bit bigger so I could really use both of my hands." Check Apple's patent for its Apple iTablet and Touch-screen iPod, iTouch, and iPhone.

 

 

User Interface Design and similar Touchscreen Technology?
You may want to investigate similar technology first such as screens that support Multi touch-point at once like Lemur's Touch-screen. Research suppliers as Jeff Han's Multi Touch screen hasn't yet made its way into the computer market. Many companies also offer user interface design services which may include Multi Touch screen technology.

"You can buy something like this right now. The Lemur is a Touch screen that supports multiple Touch-points at once, and communicates over Ethernet via OpenSoundControl [berkeley.edu]. I have one on my desk at work, and it works well -- e.g. I can use 5 fingers to drag 5 different balls around the Lemur's Touch-screen simultaneously, and see my actions mirrored instantaneously on the software on my PC." - It won't be an elo Touch screen.
