As we amass more and more data, it seems only natural that we’ll need new methods to navigate this space. Jeff Han’s multi-touch screen is impressive. I don’t know if it’s the best way to manipulate all types of data or more fine-grained scenarios, but it clearly opens up possibilities for using a wide range of motion and touch. I would love to use this in the design process for rapid re-organization of elements and trying out different types of flow. For photo or video-editing and other types of narrative storytelling, the multi-touch would be incredible.
