We so want this to be our desktop: Pen + touch direct input

Check out this video featuring Microsoft’s Manual Deskterity prototype interface and marvel at its awesomeness!

Manual Deskterity is a prototype digital drafting table that supports both pen and touch input. The combination allows the user to do so much more than pinch zoom.

The pen writes, touch manipulates, and the combination of pen+touch yields new tools like making picture cutouts or stapling stacks of pictures together.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is what the future looks like. Multitouch, eat your heart out!

What’s even more amazing, Microsoft can come up with cool stuff.
