If you were not able to make it to Lotusphere2009 or missed the Innovation Lab, eWeek has a slideshow with an overview. They missed Dandelion, my favorite thing in the lab, but still worth a read.

Lotusphere2009 Innovation Lab Highlights

January 22 2009

Every year at Lotusphere2009, IBM Lotus sets aside an entire lab to showcase new and innovative projects that are going on in the IBM Research Labs around Lotus products.

The solution worked from a web browser on multiple platforms, multiple browsers, and on multiple devices like an Android device or iPhone. It has integration with Bluehouse/LotusLive which allowed a shape in a document to be tied to an Activity. Live Synchronization of page changes and annotations was seamless. ODF DOM support allowed for documents to become widgets for use in Mashups. It was even optimized for accessibility issues like screen readers. EditSpot also had multi-touch interaction.
