I saw this and had to share this with you guys.

This may be the future and it is absolutely insane!

Microsoft Research is showing new technology that turns any surface into a touch screen.

Dubbed OmniTouch, it is a wearable system that allows multitouch input on “arbitrary, everyday surfaces,” according to a description on a Microsoft Research Web page.

The technology combines a laser-based pico projector and depth-sensing camera.

It looks a lot like the Kinect’s technology albeit at a much shorter range.

Presumably the final version would be a lot smaller and more compact.

Check out the video below..once agin, it’s nuts!

Microsoft are doing some really cool stuff with R&D. Hopefully it pays off in Windows 8.
