The Future of Touchscreens

There's no limit to what touchscreens can do! Everything from self-service check-in kiosks at Walgreens, to do it yourself stations at the post office, there are many applications that take advantage of the easy to use touchscreen. All you have to do is touch the display to quickly finish the transation. But I watched a video today that shows where else touchscreens can be used. The most unique was face recognition on the sink faucet, enabling the stream to be automatically adjusted based on user preference! I also liked the retail check-out stations which gives a suggested upsell item (or two!). And for those of you who grew up in the 80's the touchscreen Rubics cube is interesting, although I think I would get just as frustrated with this one as the mechanical game.
