Touch the mouse: A suggestion for an end to the lack of transparency in using multi-touch as an interface
Buxtons brief and incomplete survey provided an instant inspiration. Some of the problems presented in ‘not being the fool trying to replace the mouse’ and cluttering visibility with fat little fingers in front of a high definition [...]

The article is effective as a survey of touch technology. It reads much like an introduction to the user centered concerns of designing, and to a lesser extent, implementing a multi-touch solution. I find Buxton’s assertions very much complimentary to user-interface design tenets. His notion that everything is best for something and worst [...]

Buxton’s article provides a fairly good summary of the evolution and refinement of multi-touch technologies over the last twenty of thirty years. When I say fairly good (and not very good), is because, although I do not really know how thorough is this listing, it seems curious to me that most of the projects and [...]

“I dont know what it is that I like about you,
But I like it a lot.

Bill Buxton’s “Multi-touch Systems I Have Known and Loved” offers an intriguing history of multi-touch and related systems. The very fact that he [...]

So the history of touch interfaces. It’s informative and a good resource for research for sure, it’s more than a little dry, it’s a technical paper… informally structured. The lack of structure makes it less painful to read and it’s half-fun to see the development of products that i’ve used or find interesting such as [...]
This reading was an interesting, if somewhat dry, history of touch and multitouch devices. Don’t really have much too say past that. It is worth noting, that our own projection multitouch (the DVL one that is) was made only two years after the first one was made by Andy Wilson. I was chatting with a [...]

This touch screen business is all so pretty, isn’t it?
But, within every great product - that perfectly fuses both form and function - the story of a human’s understanding of concept must be integrated. For instance - within Bill Buxton’s article the “The “Natural” Language of Interaction: A Perspective on Non-Verbal Dialogues” - he explains [...]
