Iphone sets the tone for multi touch sensation; even Sony wants to play with multi-touch technology. The Japanese Giant has developed one of their own with optical sensing technology that allows up to 5 points of contact on the polysilicon film display. The protocol is said to have VGA resolution of 640×480 and will make its way to mobile devices, media players, consoles and other portable devices. If we aren’t too lazy and spoiled with remote control, a bare multi-touch big screen TV is not a dream. But I think they have to make flying couch first.
