Never heard the term Multi Touch before? Well we are sure that in the time ahead it will become as common and familiar to you as your mouse with Point and Click, or USB with Plug and Play.

Essentially multi touch is the ability to use 3 or more touch points simulataneously on a screen, and since we have 5 fingers on each hand Multi Touch really comes into its own when all 10 fingers can be used simultaneously. The interesting point here is that when you have say 5 people interacting with content using 2 fingers each, some dynamic interactivity begins to happen changing the way we inter-relate, engage with one another, how we access and manipulate our content and screen.
