For those of you not on the Cycling `74 mailing list, the future is now: the Lemur touchscreens are on their way. So if you thought this would never be a real product, think again. Cycling tells us that the new machines “are out of the factory” and after final testing will be in San Francisco in another couple of weeks. That’s an actual production Lemur pictured.

This also means “touching sessions” are coming soon, and really, who wouldn’t look forward to that? (Makes the Acid Tests with their Buchlas seem tame by comparison.) See Lee Sherman’s coverage of Cycling’s Lemur event for more.
