Interesting stuff, I would find the light table very useful, but I'd still want a pen for editing finer details.
However, about 7 years ago I saw something along the same lines, it was a computer with dual pens for an interface instead of fingers or mouse. The two pens moved in 3-D space allowing for more spacial control of the screen than just fingers on a 2-D screen. The demonstrators did all kinds of cool things with the pens - create virtual pottery on a virtual wheel, or massage a 2-D picture into a 3-D environment. Cool stuff, but I haven't seen it hit the market...

WOW just amazing. I can see this type of equipment and technology being widely used in the coming years. This indeed looks like the next step. Amazing and yes, it also reminded me of the movies Minority Report. Just amazing how this actually is real and not just a movie. Great stuff for sure. Like the others have said: I want one too!!! Thanks for the link JeffM.
