10/GUI: The Mousekiller?

10gui

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.

I see…a Japanese Robot Tour

What marvels are in store?  You could wait or you could ask me.

I have few gifts, but one is clairvoyance as relates to technology. I often can accurately derive future developments by analyzing past developments using a methodology I like to call “guessing correctly”.

I have again seen a small shred of the future.

I hereby, on this day and no later, predict the following event and surrounding media storm:

A Japanese robotics developer and a Sony subsidiary entertainment company will book and execute a tour of a performing robotic musical group or system. This tour will be handled in the same way an indie-rock guitar band tour is currently handled, in support of a debut CD “recorded by” the group/system.

Seems inevitable, doesn’t it? I’ll bet five bucks! It’s a push if its not Sony.

Man, it’s gonna be pretty sweet when I can point back to this post!

<shakes fist> You hear me, tomorrow?! I got your number!!
