    don't count on it. People have enough back problems without having to lean over and touch a screen.

    I wonder if that's similar technology to something I've seen in the movie theaters in our area. They all have a pad on the floor about 10' x 12' that you walk on, and the activity on the pad/screen follows you across the floor. Pretty wacky.

    it is a neat invention, I can see it taking off for people who use that orientation to work with. Like people who use Drafting tables.

    thats a nice toy but interfacing with your hands is as exact as painting with your fingers. This is not new technology, just a nifty version of it...
    Cinteq however, is pretty cool. but that's been around for more than a decade. For a price...

    wacom!

    hi guys
    my first post here! i'm sitting in rainy switzerland, new to lightwave and waiting for the open beta (sigh!).
    anyway, working as an illustrator (coming from traditional drawing background), i use a cintiq 21 for about a month now (after a few years with a cintiq 15) and i can tell you that it is about the best investment you can do if you have a background in trad. arts. especially the possibility to rotate the whole thing is an absolute necessary feature! i only wish that the zoom strips would be a little bit more responsive...
    greetings to all

    I expect you're not required to use your fingers I suppose you could use any device. (Keep your thoughts pure please )

    It will only be as good as the software that is created to run with it.

    If any is created.
