Last night when I was watching all of the election coverage on CNN, I couldn't help but notice national correspondent John King tapping a touch-sensitive monitor to show election results across various states.


Described as the "Multi-Touch Collaboration Wall" by its inventor, Jeff Han of Perceptive Pixel, the multitouch display can to showcase animated maps, videos, photos, live streams of websites, and charts.

"It's a stupendous way to explain a lot of complicated data," says David Bohrman, chief producer of CNN's political coverage. This highly interactive display is said to cost around $100,000.
