It is one of the latest technologies on which Microsoft, Apple and Intel all are working. In it rather than interacting with computer with help of any interface like mouse or keypad we interact directly with computer which is also known as Natural User Interfacing. At the end of this WORKSHOP students will be able to make their own multi touch pad. So lets the computing begin in a completely new way and step forward into a completely new era of Motion Sensing & Gesture Computing.
