I’m always interested into the neo-interaction stuffs which change to old communication way, whatever it maybe faster, easier, smarter.. It is always exciting to change the way of think by change of action-reaction/interaction/interface.. From hand, logic gate, command, and mouse we’ve used for a decade (I still remember that my first computer 286, dun have mouse~)..
However, I used to think that the mouse device is quite a regress of Human Being Sensation.. The keyboard can “write” your saying, single layer, word by word.. Or just like what I’m speaking while typing this article.. Although it is a bit delayed, but it is still the way we used to do so, or I can say the natural way.. Nevertheless, as the video also mentioned, “mouse” is a single point which limited our action in 1 click, 1 way, 1 spot.. This is not what can only to be done even for my Cat, at least she can use both hand to paw the sand..
Of cos the old computer may not power enough to support the calculation of “2 mouses”.. But today while we’re having fun with multi-touch on the iphone, it is the time to expect a new way of interaction/control/interface.. There are some consumer products has been released on the market, iphone, HP Touch Smart(still havent take a try!!), Windows Table, and some more I didn’t know..
From the Video, it raised the shortcoming of touch screen nowadays, which is your palm will block your sight.. Also, as my mum said on me while I proposed to buy her a touch screen computer (i think it will be easier for her to handle the drug ‘n drag action with her human-born-sense instead of the artificial mouse in a very “illogic way” to finish the tasks), she said the forearm will get tire easily why using the vertical touch screen.. Meanwhile, the horizontal touch screen will hurt your neck.. The way 10/GUI did is a really great exit, with a touch pad on the keyboard area to maintain the comfortable angle..
Anyway, 10/GUI is still a concept, and it is foreseeable can do better in the short future.. I’m really exciting while the interface is going to an unknown zone with endless possibilities and “the best ever” imagination ‘n engineering.. I dun feel happy while I’m stupid enough to not be one of person who “push” the world, but I’m real satisfy to witness this step~
What I’m want to say at last is, while there is going to be a brand new aspect, we can imagine/witness the ways you’ve never though about before while those made grand changes in human living.. The multi-touch, probably since iphone, creating differ commands with pre-designed finger’s track.. For sure is a real great idea even more than Human used to do(i mean million of revolution).. But how about we think more about the way of sharing, the way of data handling/internal interaction, the way of controlling, the other way of interface… … It gotta be a better tomorrow, how amazing ~~
