Watch here (Or read his post here):



Here's a Vista video he posted earlier:

Retorical? Is that a word?

I've never been one to shun my responsibilities (as a good spella) – thanks for the fedbak! LOL

Spelling? Bah...This site is edumacational enough as is. :)

The touch interface on that Motion looked...wow. I really like the idea of being able to use touch or active pen depending on the situation.

Hi Anonymous!

All jokes aside (beside/inside & outside) the touch-"ability" that these new devices bring is truly exciting. One thing that makes me stay awake at night is the next step, i.e. multi-touch.

Just imagine sitting a 17" Tablet on your lap and using several fingers at anyone given time to navigate, extrapolate and delve into the Windows PC platform...cool stough (stuff! LOL)

I saw something recently that Apple filed a patent for a multi-touch interface. They showed some really interesting scenarios (for example, pinching your fingers together on the LCD to zoom in on a map) where multi-touch would be great.

Uh oo...there goes those Apple tablet rumors again. :)

Hi Gordon,

I think sitting with touch is very addictive, and described sometimes as intuitive too. When you think about a mouse it really is a third-party action, whereas placing your finger on the screen could be consider "direct interaction." Hmmmmm; something to think about.

Gordon said...

Hugo,

Oh I agree completely, buddy. Sure a mouse feels natural to us but pointing and moving things with our fingers is a far more organic way to interact with data. The demo to the video you posted is substantial proof of what that interaction could look like.
