Turn Any Surface into a Touchscreen? Yes, Please.

Last week, I was complaining about how boring smartphones have become.

Check out OmniTouch, which allows pretty much any surface to become a multitouch input, including body parts, walls and notepads.

There’s a longer video over on TechCrunch.

Now this is cool. The shoulder-mounted unit is a bit clunky, but I can see definite potential in the portable projector/input device idea. I can see this type of analog working well to disrupt the display market, especially for portable displays.

Thoughts?
