And folowing on from Alan's research I have also seen a couple of projects
that are using this type of technology to track specified objects through a
CCTV / Web cam set up - something similar to what the Police uses to track
faces in a crowd but a lot more effective!

The result of a few years and a few million USD spent by the largest
software company on the planet, and comparable with efforts done by
individuals within the community.

Jeff Hans work on multitouch displays and UIs is awesome and pre-dates

Mirco Mullers lovely lowfat UI concepts would probably have also turned
out similar results as the Microsoft stuff if he had backing and time.


Pompeu Fabra Unis mesmerising "reactable".
