Nokia Turns Icy Wall into Multitouch-capable Screen


Engineers at Nokia were able to create a touchscreen out of a wall of ice by using a projector, along with several infrared cameras that run a special program.

While the result is nothing more than an interesting experiment put together for the purpose of showing how almost anything can be converted into a touch interface, it will definitely help serve as a way for engineers to look into further possibilities.

This is somewhat similar to Kinect, in that it uses an infrared camera to track bodies.

We’re still waiting for gloved-touch, which is rumored to be a possibility with the iPhone 5 and iPad 2.
