With the development of technology, touch interface became fashion in today’s geek society.Jonny Lee (previously quoted in this post) developed his own multi touch device using a Wiimote, here is a video explaining it: Touching tools appear for all kind of things, video games, palmtops, mobile phones, DJ devices, remote controls, cash redraw screens, etc.This technology first appear for a single touching point, but now, we start to see multi touch technology – with more then a single point.Here is a video from a group called iBand using a Nintendo DS and two iPhones as instruments.

 

The idea is not new, other tools using touch, and multi touch interfaces exist, like Korg’s KaosPadmini kp and Kaossilator.  Groups of artists also worked with touch as an interface. It is the case for Ractable, the video speaks by itself, so check it out:
