Something we won’t see tomorrow: iMac Multitouch


I agree, a touch screen iMac would not make much sense (for a kiosk yes, but not a desktop) however I do like the look of the iMac case in this demo ad. Still, an aluminum Cinema Display style iMac would look nice too. Me, I am still wanting an iSight for my CD.

Something we won’t see tomorrow: iMac Multitouch


The rumors are flying about what Apple might do to the Mac lineup tomorrow– for my part, I just hope Jobs stays away from the Mac Mini long enough for me to get one with Leopard on it. But I can guarantee you that you won’t see this baby, as cool as it is. This is a 3D demo from a guy working on a demo reel for ad agencies. But it is pretty amazing.

Now, people have said before that a multitouch computer like this wouldn’t work– to find out why, touch your screen for five minutes and notice how tired your arm feels. However, an interface like this is too good not to use somewhere. Sure, we may not see an iMac with a big touchable screen like this, but “…a guy can dream, can’t he?”

Thanks, Andrew!
