Input on Skinput?

When I first saw the Skinput video, my thoughts were something along the lines of “No way is that real…”.  But a quick internet search revealed that Skinput is very much real, and very much amazing.  While the official paper hasn’t been released yet, we’ll have to wait until April 12th for that, there IS an absolutely crazy youtube video out there that you all need to see:

As you can see, Skinput has the potential to revolutionize the computer, MP3 player, and cell phone, along with a slew of other devices that I can’t even think of.  What do you all think?  Is the new touch screen?  Or is it a novelty that will fizzle out or never even catch on?  If you could have one, would you want a phone that operated on this technology?
