Pen and Finger Input Multi-touch is possible

N-Trig Now Supports Pen And Multi-touch Finger Input Simultaneously
“The folks over at N-trig are already familiar with digital input, and now the company has come up with a new version of its battery-powered Digital Pencil that supports multi-touch input devices. With such a device, users will be able to interact with objects onscreen using their fingers and also the Digital Pencil at the same time. Why would we want to use a pen in conjunction when our fingers? Well, if you're looking for precision, it might be a better tool, as seen in the video after the break. You also get a lot of flexibility when interacting with devices, since you can use it as a brush to draw, or a cutter to trim your pictures. Check out the video of it in action (after the jump) and you'll see what we mean.”
