Fujitsu making some nice progress here. A way of making any surface a touchscreen interface. With the playstation, xbox and wii type controllers and some of the work done with gesturing you have to wonder wher things will be soon.

"We're quickly getting used to the fact that computer, smartphone and tablet screens are meant to be touched — but what about paper?

Fujitsu has developed a technology that detects objects your finger is touching in the real world, effectively turning any surface — a piece of paper, for example — into a touchscreen, DigInfo reports.

"This system doesn't use any special hardware; it consists of just a device like an ordinary webcam, plus a commercial projector. Its capabilities are achieved by image processing technology," explains Taichi Murase, a researcher at Fujitsu's Media Service System Lab."
