Jeff Han wowed everyone with his multi-touch display more than a year before the iPhone debuted, now he’s got a 82-incher under his control in the video above. (more videos here)

Perhaps more interesting, his Perceptive Pixel company also has a “desktop” 27-incher which he says is more for “all day” usage.  Apple has been playing around with the idea of a multi-touch iMac for quite awhile.  Last year, Apple submitted the following patent drawings, and many still hold out hope that upcoming iMacs will gain touch entry in a more draft table form factor.

Perceptive Pixel’s design is available in 6 months.
