I recently came across a very interesting site with videos about Multi-Touch Interaction.

The videos can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVI6xw9Zph8&eurl=

I am a really big fan of interactive browser applications. Google Local and Microsoft Live Local are doing amazing things and, together with small companies like ours (http://www.telerik.com/ajax), are changing people perceptions about what can happen in the browser. Nonetheless, after watching this video, everything that's viewed as incredibly "interactive" on the web is a bit bleak compared to what you will see. Speaking about map interactivity, if you go to the middle of the video, you will see how a user interacts with a 3D geographical map. It's not happening on the web but still I was very amazed.

After watching those videos, I have a feeling that movies such as "The Island""Minority Report" and "I, Robot" will be a reality very soon.

Will we see such interactivity in the browser anytime soon? I don't know but we'll be there:)
