The iPhone touchscreen is only the beginning

Here's an interesting take on the business/government/societal challenge of making sense of and finding new connections in the mountains of digital data we're collecting.

His solution is a new multi-sensor touchscreen technology that promises to not only revolutionize the way we physically interface with computers, but more importantly, the methods we can develop to conceptualize and visualize our data.

Here is a URL to a video of his presentation:
