The modelling environment of the future...

Received this little gem of a video a while back, and have finally got around to posting it to my blog. It is a demonstration of touch wall technology for direct, large scale manipulation of diagrams and multimedia content. So, I think this would make a great tool to be used for large scale modelling environments in BPM. I have heard anecdotal stories of people cutting up large print outs of diagrams and then shuffling them on a table top. Seems to me that we should get with the 21st century and use an electronic table top to do the same.
