REUTERS: Researchers in Japan are developing interactive touch screens that appear to float in mid-air.

Although some of the nine justices signaled a willingness to set a test that would describe exactly what types of computer-implemented inventions were patent eligible, others suggested there was no need for so broad a ruling. A decision is expected by the end of June. Chief Justice John Roberts questioned whether a proposed...
