We've seen that multi-touch on smartphones has been wildly successful. On the iPhone, in fact, it's the only tactile input the user can provide! However, I'm wondering how likely it'll be for multi-touch to take off on desktop PCs (and PC gaming) in the future. Right now, it's mostly a lack of good multi-touch monitors on the market, but the fact that there's not much of a push by manufacturers is disconcerting. It'd be really nice to have multi-touch gestures to navigate in an RTS, for instance, and music games would be really fun with multi-touch input (think Elite Beat Agents or DJ Max Technika, but on the PC). An example.
Do you think that multi-touch for PCs will eventually take foot and become popular, or will it stagnate?
P.S. I'm guessing this would be best suited for CW, so if a mod feels like it's appropriate, feel free to mark it as such.
