How many here would like to use their computer the way he did in 'Minority Report'? This article says you can do that with this product.

I'm personally holding out for something like SixthSense myself. Look here.

Shucks! And just when it looked like we'll be saying hello to our keyboard and mouse.

I used to daydream of really baroque interfaces like seen on alien spaceships in SF shows. (Interlaced triangular touch-pad layouts, flowing Hub-And-Spoke control hardware designs, and more.) Remember how the heydey of "Cyberpunk" was the late 90's? Between parts of Star Trek series, the Matrix, Johnny Mnemonic, and more? Even some of the old "cute" 80's films had some innovative interfaces. (I vaguely recall Last Starfighter had some. Star Wars fans want to chime in?)

Now the Future of Computing is here... and it's ... UGLY. Windows 8?! Eew.

Where did all the cool tech flavor go? Did we lose that innocent sense of wonder and get crushed into being drones?

Nope. Opportunistic IP laws and patent trolls crushed it for us. 8)

Whenever I see something like this, the first thing that comes to mind is, "Wouldn't your arms get tired?"

Stoic Joker: Isn't that just a later version of AOL's "Me too".

Beats me, I haven't gone near AOL since 1997.

But it is a forum standard for I 2nd that.
