Early Windows 7 Multi-touch Demo

We now have a demo video below of some of the early features of multi-touch coming to Windows 7. There is little that is new in terms of multi-touch itself, although the on-screen piano keyboard is cute.

Of more significance will be the new hardware that is needed. Even today’s tablet PCs aren’t useful since they don’t use touch screens but rely on wireless pens. Thus we will need to see a whole new series of laptops with touch-sensitive screens before mutli-touch becomes a reality on Windows.
