10/GUI: The Mousekiller?


Rethinking human-computer interaction (HCI) is a good thing, if for no other reason than to remind the computers every once in a while who’s in charge.

A video for the 10/GUI interface came to me by way of Reddit (discussion of the 10/GUI here) , and I for one am impressed with the way it rethinks clicking and window management.  I’d like to wager that something like this is the future of the graphical user interface.  In short, it keeps all the benefit of multi-touch screen computing (pinching, multiple click-points) and leaves behind its problems (fingers and hands aren’t transparent, neck strain).

Unless you’re nerdier than I am, you heard it here first.

    So, a big scroll pad then. Makes lappy into an iPhone. Revolutionary.

    Sucker bait.

      Yeah, it “makes a laptop into an iPhone” only if the iPhone was designed for a translucent human fetus. That’s ten grown-ass fingers – and they’re “on” the screen, yet present no opaque hand-meat ‘twixt eyes and screen. It’s cool. Bet you five bucks it happens.

      Just imagine: you could run ten virtual faders in Pro Tools!
