A couple of years ago, TED Talks had an amazing futuristic view of the “Sixth Sense.” If you haven’t seen it, Pattie Maes’ preview of the future in 2009 is coming to life. At 8 minutes, it is very worth watching.

Just released is the current status of their vision for touch devices. OmniTouch shows the current status of touch technologies on any surface. Take a look at this video for a preview, fast forward to about 1:20 for options which include email in the palm of your hand or on a screen drawn on any surface.

We can only dream at what the future holds.
