Crazy prediction: That's not an iPad in the picture
That is their new apple tv. It is just angled to look flat on the floor with the hand going down. But it is actually horizontal.
If I'm wrong then I am but I haven't heard that theory around. Wanted to put my theory out there just in case I'm right.

I know it's a bit crazy. But look at the bezel. Rather large. No home button.
High resolution touch screen. You don't see the end of it either.
Turn the invite picture horizontal and it can pass for a mounted tv with a hand touching the bottom. The icons are pretty big for that hand which is female. So unless they've changed the size of the app icon or it's a large female hand then i can understand.
Everyone knows about the iPad 3. But "I cracked it" comment from Steve makes me thing they are working on this and they will into it for a fall release. As runor3d by other sites.
The invitation says that you have to "see" and "touch" this. I think it is an iPad3 but they will also intro their new touchscreen apple tv.

The one thing I see in the picture that I haven't heard anybody talk about is that the edge looks black, which has me thinking a black anodized case would look simply amazing, kind of the same design I'm hoping they give the next iPhone.. Instead of just a different color bezel, they can sell a bare aluminum finish or one with a black finish like those older Macbooks they used to sell which were beautiful.
This "forum" cracks me up. Where a senior write and moderator is flaming an idea which I deemed as crazy in the freaking title.
True it is likely an iPad 3 announcement.
Lots of people would touch their tv's. And news flash! It wouldn't be the only way to interact with it.
But touch is one way. It is a media hub remember. Going up and activating a game or movie on the tv and enjoying isn't out of the question.
Crazy I know.
Btw if it actually IS an apple tv in te picture, (which it probably isn't Im not totally insane)

Back on topic now, I have to disagree with you and say people are not going to like to get up off of the couch to touch their TV's. IMHO.

I wouldn't want to touch my tv or have my son, or niece, or anybody else touching my TV screen all the time. It would get pretty bad watching movies with tons of greasy fingerprints all over it. Not to mention some people don't understand it's a "touch" screen, not a "tap" screen. I could only imagine people jabbing the heck out of their TV screens
