Comments on NanoTouch Touchscreen Works From The Back
Radical solution to a common problem is slick - but will people like using it? (Read the complete story)

"I don't see how this would require practice as you see your finger. (feedback is there and is intuitive) "

"Maybe you're right. But I invested a lot of time in the 9th grade learning how to touch type, and my fingers are used to where the 'keys' are. If you try to touch type on the back of the screen, all the finger positions are reversed.
Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, what if you made a wide-screen tablet computer with touch pads on the back on either side. You'd hold it with the edge resting on your palms, and then you could 'touch type' upside down with each hand separately."

"How is this any differnt than using a mouse? I do not see my hand when I use my mouse and i do just fine!"

"Jeff - a standard mouse requires a flat surface. The NanoTouch touchscreen is intended for use on small handheld devices with very little screen real estate. Maybe I should have explained that better..."
