How can you make a touchscreen thinner and brighter at the same time? Use the pixels as touch sensors, says Apple. Touchscreens and multitouch technology make up a significant majority of Apple's research into future user interface improvements, and the iPhone introduced some of those UI paradigm shifts into our increasingly mobile computing...
