Multi-touch UI: New video & interview

Jefferson Han is the NYU researcher whose research into multi-touch interfaces–and accompanying super-cool video–exploded onto the Web this time last year.   He’s been on many folks’ brains since last week, when Apple demoed multi-touch features on the forthcoming iPhone.  Now Fast Company has posted a feature on Jeff, along with an new video.  The profile is just a tad breathless ("The scope of the projects he’s involved in is a testament to the sheer wattage of his brain" makes me think there’s a Trapper Keeper with "I [Heart] JH!!!" on it), but it’s fun to learn about a very bright dude with a huge passion for just getting it done.  (Hey, how many 12-year-olds build a laser?)

Rock n’ Pshop

  • Put down the gat, pick up a brush: Rappers now battle with Photoshop, not guns.  (More Healing Brush than Slice Tool–I can dig it.)
  • Liberty rocks on in this statue-remixing contest on Worth1000.com [Via]
  • The Hard Rock Cafe had a similar, if slightly edgier, idea.
  • Speaking of remixing, Pioneer has introduced the DVJ-1000, a turntable that lets DJs scratch with video DVDs just as they would with music on vinyl.  "Digital video scratches, loops and instant cues are all possible," they proclaim. I’d love to see a video demo of this thing in action. (Maybe it’ll pop up at a future Flashforward or the like.) [Via Jody Rodgers]
