On the first day of TED 2006 conference in Monterey, California Jeff Han debut his multi-touch driven computer screen that is reminiscent of "Minority Report with Tom Cruise". According to Fast Company Magazine, "Jeff Han is about to change the face of computing. Not even the big boys are likely to catch him. His fingertips splayed, he placed them on the cobalt blue 36-inch-wide display before him and traced playful, wavy lines that were projected onto a giant screen at his back. He conjured up a lava lamp and sculpted floating blobs that changed color and shape based on how hard he pressed. ("Google should have something like this in their lobby," he joked.) With the crowd beginning to stir, he called up some vacation photos, manipulating them on the monitor as if they were actual prints on a tabletop. He expanded and shrank each image by pulling his two index fingers apart or bringing them together. A few oohs and aahs bubbled up from the floor."
