After following a few links about possible “true video” versions of the Apple iPod (link) which mentions some of the patents that Apple own in respect to touch display technology. I came across this set of videos demonstrating some truly beautiful examples of touch screen related Human, Computer Interface design. (link).
The mention of dropping the ‘mechanical’ scroll wheel in favour of a touch sensitive screen could be wonderful if the implementation is as classy as some of the examples on show here. Lets hope its not as touch sensitive as those new nano’s :p
