Multitouch Globe from Displax

Once a rarity, multitouch screens have now become quite common thanks to the proliferation of touch smartphones and tablets. However, there are still a few things that might make you think "wow, that's cool!" - just like real flat screens once did to generations of people used to bulky and curved CRT screens.

If you think you had seen it all regarding touchscreens, let me present you a multitouch curved globe screen, made by the Portuguese company Displax (they have lots other interesting touch things, like a multitouch skin that can turn any glass pane into a multitouch surface, up to 100").

See it in action, and how it can turn Google Earth into a true "globe" experience:
