NEMO UX - the shape of the desktop to come?
« on: November 18, 2014, 01:56:49 PM »
Details are sketchy. But if you're a fan of all those scifi desktops you see in movies like Oblivion or Minority Report, the NEMO UX from Sungkyungkwan University, Republic of Korea just may be what you've been waiting for:

Quote
The computing environments looks like SF movies would come to our real life in the not too distant future. NEMO-UX project is the first step to make the computing environment looks like SF movies, and would be a big, important part of IT.

 Everybody can think new display computing environment watching SF movies or future display clip nowadays. Like this, Tabletops, Wall-size displays, and Smart glass are coming into your real life.

 From long time ago, NEMO-UX team have dreamed the new computing generation. Soon, new display would be taken for granted. Now, NEMOSHELL software platform made will give you a new experience.

It was recently demoed at the ACM ITS 2014 in Dresden



Amazing. The classic messy desktop enshrined in a computer interface! Hows that for progress?  ;D

I did have my phase when I really did want comps to look like that!!

Now it's just a bit tricky to imagine how you don't just have A "Windows-y/Apple/'Nix paradigm" (or command line).
Part of it is the strange new skills called for!

I still like the scene in Minority Report where Tom Cruise gestures with his hands while talking and his computer tableau turns to a steaming pile.  :)

It looks like the type of interface where messing it up is way easier than making order out of the mess.  :)

Edit:  Perhaps a middle finger raised should be the gesture for Undo.  ;)

Not a particularly ergonomic setup. Your neck and fingers would be aching by the end of the day.

Yes, it would be better to hang it on the wall, then you could be standing up and your arms would at least get some exercise. In fact lifting your arms up a lot is supposed to be good for you as it provides your brain with blood supply (apparently that's why conductors live such long and healthy lives, I heard once...).
