Microsoft brings multi-touch to the laptop

Check this out. I saw Jeff Han's multi-touch demo from the Ted Conference and was mightily impressed. I was wondering how long it would take to bring it to a laptop.

Some folks ask, will this replace the mouse? I don't think so. A mouse has much finer granularity than a finger. But it will definitely supplement it, and I think it will be used in very creative ways, especially for design and artistic applications.
