I feel like i'm seeing the future live in those videos.
That user interface can break some boundaries, and make user interaction lots of times more intuitive than the keyboard and mouse interaction.
Not that i'm a apple fan, but they sure know how to inovate, it looks like another winning concept!

very cool - most of these new kinds of user interfaces i am extremely skeptical (like the 3d user interfaces which i find just silly)-
but the main impression you get from this is how powerful have TWO to FOUR (thumb and index of each hand) manipulators are, and how they open up all kinds of new possibilities for manipulating objects.

No doubts about it, and i specially like the way they could handle it.
What i like the most is the way they make everything zoom by stretching the object.
It becomes extremelly powerfull when it's used on the desktop (like the picture managing demo), where you can zoom-out, and have a larger workspace.

I think this is a very intuitive and powerful way of working with computers, now, i wait in expectations for more development in this field ;)

Only bad thing is dirty fingerprints! Yucky! Looks awesome though. Especially if the screens were so large. :)

Yep, if it works in a similar way to touchpads on laptops, having the fingertips wet can generate some odd behaviour.
That means one point less. Now, it only has 9999999999 on my scale ;)

that interface is absolutely awesome! I lack the words to describe it properly.

You touch it and something colorful happens - I mean WOW!!!! I want this in my home, and do stuff with it. Don't know exactly what, but I want it anyway.
