Will our kids laugh at us for using mice?

I like what I’m seeing in this nicely-styled animation which argues why today’s modus operandi of computing (the mouse) should be as dead as that spell-checked Latin I just used. The author of this propagand-o-mation describes the video as “my crazy summer project to reinvent desktop human-computer interaction”, but thats obviously down-playing his presentation and ideas quite a bit. In less than 3 days he’s already gotten 151,000 views on Vimeo, so he’s onto something.  Check it out…

    This system would be speedier with all the finger possibilities, but could scatter my attention.
    An old-fashioned mouse can be tedious, but the single clicks, one at a time help me stay focused.

  2. I believe this is going to be the enxt thing. I have seen other apllications of this same thing. I currently have a HP touchsmart t800 series. Its touch screen features are very cool but it is overreated I dare say. I have tried the Architech approach to the touch and I would not say its Painful as much as awkward. The screen doesn’t have the ability to distinguish more than one finger at a time. However, it’s said that the new Windows 7 will have the multi touch feature. I look forward to Windows 7 and this 10/GUI’s abilties to merge as one and start a whole new era. Awesome Vid
