Very Cool

Touch screen cellphone technology is a good thing.

Touch screen developer Synaptics and industrial design house Pilotfish have teamed up to demonstrate a new touch-sensitive cellphone user interface able to recognise pointing, tapping, complex gestures and proximity to the user's cheek.
This, they say "creates new possibilities such as assigning functions to two-finger taps, closing tasks by swiping an 'X' over them, sending messages by swiping them off the screen, or answering a phone by holding it up to your cheek."
