The essay I set for CS1005 in 2012 is entitled 

Multitouch User Interfaces are stuck on single-point touch interaction (discuss)

"We have seen the rise of small mobile devices and large display devices which can support upto 40 simultaneous touch-points. However, beyond the now ubiquitous "pinch to zoom" two finger gesture, multi-touch has failed to deliver new forms of interaction. Tap, double tap or even triple tap has simply replaced the mouse click. Most the time the fact that a device can support multi-touch input isn't used by applications, the operating system or the users."
