As a prototype, it looks very interesting. Looking forward to this becoming a part of our future!

This looks strikingly similar to what Apple filed a patent for a while back, though not exact. Their patent included the ability to share multiple iDevices, so that makes it unique, but the underlying concept was EXACTLY as indicated in this article. The iDevices project onto a surface, and cameras track user input to provide touch functionality on the projected screen.

Poor choice of a name -- Omnitouch is already a product from Home Automation Inc., been out for years You'd think the geniuses at Carnegie Mellon would have taken a moment to at least Google the name.

I think this is fine...if you can conceal it in a Parrot figure...then nobody would know you're walking around with a shoulder mounted camera.

Why are we not hearing of this in the mainstream media? We are still being bombarded with iPhone propaganda. Sad situation that something as revolutionary as this should go almost completely unreported by the msm. Thanks for this glimpse into the future for technology...

I suspect the '3d camera' is actually the Kinect internals repackaged/relensed for shorter ranges (the Kinect is a very cheap device for the capabilities it's got). Cool idea matching it up to a projector.
