    MyNokiaBlog via newscientis

    Im now excited on the IRON MAN touchscreen tech. It's becoming of a reality. Remember IRON MAN 2 where Tony used his coffee table to search for the detiails of the Latin Spy girl? WOW!!

    There are plenty of things that can do that sort of thing with a webcam or a wiimote.

    Nah, the part in Iron Man 2 that was the coolest was when he hacked the display in the courtroom with his phone, and showed all the utter failerures of his rivals to make an Iron Man suit.

    hacking using a phone is still LIGHTYEARS away. anything that is flat touchscreen is just around the corner. Over-the-Air touchscreen is being researched by some company who also brought to you by the ANY-TV-CAN-BE-A-TOUCHSREEN team that is coming on the Nokia N8 (or any HD recoding Nokia). Though I would love to hack someone's presentation using my phone via bluetooth or WiFi Direct.

    Speaking of WiFi Direct, does it inspired the IRON MAN 2 movie? I mean WiFi Direct uses the same technology as Bluetooth only it has the same Fidelity as WiFi.

    Awesome shit of course, these kind of things really amaze and make me wonder how the world will look like in 20 years. I love the fact that technology really can change your life so much [​IMG]

    also, projector + wiimote + IR-leds(on pencils for example) = multitouch touch screen [​IMG]
    But this is probably a bit more advanced and/or precise.

    This is actually similar tech to Kinect. No mentionnon how they put an image there though.
    Issac: I was just trying to say that this isn't new tech, it's just an advancement of old tech

    don't be so sure.
    may not be as comfortable, but pretty much any kind of hacking that can be done with a PC running linux can be done with some phones too.
