You may have noticed from my past writing that I’m not overly impressed with technology for its own sake. Sure, Google Chrome is nifty, and Twitter sure does suck up a lot of my time, but I’m rather more interested in how one might use technology than in the coolness factor of technology.

Sometimes, though, even I run across technology that just blows me away as I wonder, "How did they do that?"

Google Maps is an example; the multi-touch screen (introduced by Jeff Han, a computer scientist at New York University) is another example.
