Microsoft seems quite interested in the touch pad first, with its 40-inch table, and now with a new technology recently developed by Hrvoje Benko researcher called OmniTouch.

This curious device was shown during the "TechFest" held in Redmond, the headquarters of Microsoft in charge of area this type of prototyping.

The device, which has a chamber similar to that of Kinect, is mounted on the shoulder of the user and from there projects an image toward any surface that is positioned in front, by adjusting its size to the surface for convenience.
