Orem (UT) - Think only multi-billion-dollar corporations such as Apple and Microsoft can create multi-touch devices that react to finger gestures? Think again: A teenager from Orem, Utah, created a home-brew hardware and software solution for a science fair that enables a user to browse the XKCD comics database using multi-touch finger gestures.

I think that wile he may have created an innovative design and certainly very talented, claiming he beat all the big guns is a stretch. Phillips had this Games Table going 2 years ago which is pretty impressive. Plus Microsoft have their projects under development too.

The article specifically states OS-X though which I doubt is true too given the multi touch technology that Apple are using in the iPhone. I am sure their research teams have already built larger versions.
