Is that you demo-ing it? If so, you're really cute. Do you have a girlfriend?

Also, that's quite amazing - though I could never really get the hand of touch-screen monitors myself (always screw up and select something that I don't want to select). I guess I have clumsy fingers. The screen real estate looks great, though, and definitely seems to fit for a productive environment.

Seems like your hard work is payin' off!

Latency looks like a ball ache (for me personally) especially on the AutoFilter Close ups.
Also from a system like this Id want to not have to wear anything on my hands.

Yes, I'm wondering how pressure sensitive the screen is using those 'Sea Hunt' gloves?

@cristior: can you give us some info on the screen itself?

Things are getting better in regards to how we can use & interact with computers. Removing the "interface" between user & screen, & simply manipulating the screen itself is a big step forward.

Nice rig BTW.

A little OT: Who makes the controller in the video with all the rotary knobs and faders?

He is using infrared diodes in the fingertips of his gloves, I suppose:

Or he's just holding a laserpointer in his hand and the gloves are redundant.

I seen another very similar video recently, where the user was using red LEDs on fingertips with Wii motes to pick up location. So guessing its a very similar principal here.

Looks more like a 32" screen at most...

94 cm equals 37 inch...

I think its just a stand with a piece of frosted glass that is placed in front of a beamer (which is not shown in the video)...

EDIT: you can actually see the beamer in the upper right of this screenshot:
