Designer’s Depot led me to learning about Micro$oft’s research (this link will annoyingly resize your window) into the future of computers. What I found interesting was their ideas about gesture technology, which looks like it’s maybe where Minority Report got its idea from.

Whilst this all seems very clever, I’m left thinking that it’s a lot more effort. I was under the impression that I had been sitting erganomically with my arms resting on the table & my screen at eye level. I can’t really see myself wanting to wave my arms around all day like a conductor. I’m very comfortable browsing with one hand & with my other hand holding up my head.

One thought on “Gesture technology”

  1. Too true – although sometimes, I’m quite aware that my colleagues see me in the ‘browsing position’ when I should be working.

    At least gesture technology would make it more difficult to distinguish between hard work and no work!

    That said, I’d probably have to get me some stronger arms – just a few minutes on the Eye Toy gives them the aches!
