Five-fingered input delivers death blow to the traditional mouse

One of my favorite scenes in the sci-fi anime classic Ghost in the Shell is when the robot secretary's hands transform into spidery circuit tendrils inputting data at light speed. At first glance that's the best description I'd give for the new, and very real, Amenbo five-finger input device.

Developed by Japan's Double Research & Development Co., the input device uses fingertip sensors to allow you to more carefully manipulate everything from 3D computer models to games. The company also hopes to harness the input device to control five-finger robot hands remotely.

You can see the Amenbo in action in the video below.
