Understand the real human multitouch technology

A video of a human-based multitouch interface, created by the Multitouch Barcelona design group, that changes our perspective about things we do daily with computers.

We complain a lot about our computer, like how it takes up to a minute to turn on, applications take more than few seconds to load, it crashes once in a while, and e-mails take forever to be delivered.

Now, let's imagine how all that would be if we did it ourselves. It takes most of us half an hour to get out of bed and get ready to begin with. Personally, give me like 45 minutes.

With this in mind, a design group called Multitouch Barcelona has carried out the Natural Interaction project to explore the communication between human and technology.

They design touch-sensitive environments where real world interactions move to a digital context, with everything happening the way it's supposed to in the real world.

Give the video a peep; your perspective and appreciation for technology will get a reality check.
