Recently i had the idea to create a new blog which will serve also as a new section for the "Innoventions" tech articles i post the week-end on Disney and more. It is called the "Innoventions Blog" and you can discover it HERE.
The goal of the D&M Innoventions series is to let you know about amazing new technologies. If you like Epcot, Tomorrowland and WDI Audio-Animatronics, then the Innoventions Blog is for you!
As you'll see the blog layout is as pure as possible with lot of "air" thanks to the white color. All the previous tech articles posted on D&M are now on this new blog and if in the future i decide to post new tech articles, like for instance the one below, you will find them here.
Let's celebrate the opening of this new section with the video of an amazing "multi-touch plus stylus" technology developed by Microsoft called "Manual Deskterity". I posted previously articles about the Microsoft Courier Tablet project but what the video was showing was a CGI animation of the concept, not the real thing. Today, it's different as what is filmed is the real thing. There is little doubt that it will be part of the Courier project if Microsoft finally succeed to put it into production.
So what is this "Manual Deskterity"? Well, let's say that for some multi touch applications using your finger works well, and for others a stylus would be better. "Manual Deskterity" shows how using both in conjunction could be the best option of all to manipulate digital objects in different ways whether it's to copying them, stacking them, slicing them or even tearing them apart. Have a look, it's amazing!
