Apparently Windows 7 will feature multitouch capabilities.
It's probably a good idea to do a plugin (as the keyboard/mouse plugin) once the SDK is out :)
Which should be this year.

i don't think we can expect any standardized mass-produced multitouch hardware to become available at a reasonable price to a significantly large number of people in the near future.
wiimote excluded :)

I've always wondered what it would be like to play a game with two mouses... er, mice. Seems you could have some pretty neat control schemes that way.

Completely off-topic, sorry.

Wow I can now put multiple fingerprints on my non-touch screen at the same time!

Stupid ideas are made by Microsoft.

It'll be interesting to see how this works in practice, for sure, even if it's a few years down the line..

I'm rooting for multiple wiimote pointers at once :)

I'd like to point out that notebooks with multitouch touchpads are shipping as we speak :)
