Combine Pen and Touch for Productivity



I love to combine several input types at the same time. I have been thinking a lot about the possibilities with touch and pen. What's interesting is that this technology has existed for a few years now! As you can see on the video above it can be used for a lot of design and artistic purposes. Moving and resizing objects and the pen to add things is such a good combination.


Using simply touch like Microsoft's Surface has been doing is a complete failure for anything related to productivity. Media Interaction Lab is on the right path, now they just need add their technology into slate or convertible tablets.

My previous experience with something a bit similar with the X201.
