this is just too cool: <a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=UcKqyn-gUbY" target="_blank">http://youtube.com/watch?v=UcKqyn-gUbY</a><br><br><br><br>
This month's Fast Company has a feature on this guy - pretty interesting.

Hahaha, the propaganda piece at the end from BMW, classical rubbish. "What if great ideas weren't valued... Blah blah..... There is a place where great ideas are protected".....<br><br><br><br>
Ideas do not need to be protected.. What they mean is there is a place where ideas are not shared and instead used to maximize profit.

I forsee a lot of computer geeks getting frustrated with their cheeto fingers. At least there'll be another reason to go vegan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
But yeah, the idea seems nice in theory, but I doubt it's practical applications and speed. Granted you won't need a mouse, but a 2 dimensions keyboard seems like a pain in the butt. Plus the cheeto fingers.<br><br>

If I come up with an idea that could make me millions, you BET i want it protected. I know where you stand so we'll have to agree to disagree on this one.<br><br><br><br>
Now get out of my thread unless you have something relevant to the actual technology about which I posted.

I rather like the keyboard idea. Or one that projects out onto your table and recognizes your finger movements -- a guy in one of my classes a few years ago had that and it was amazing. And accurate, surprisingly.<br><br><br><br>
I could see the technology being very useful in graphic design, CAD, cartography... and, of course, CSI. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Oh very friendly.<br><br><br><br>
The technology is nothing fancy at all, even the interface wasn't, it would actually be terrible to use.<br><br><br><br>
Now it might be useful for artists, but not really anymore useful than anything else we already have.<br><br><br><br>
There is my input on the technology.<br><br><br><br>
It's a shame that you wouldn't share ideas, feed a man a fish... Or teach them to fish. *sigh* people are just greedy...

But for practical use, a projected keyboard is still just a flat tabletop. An ergonomic keyboard is much more user friendly than a projected image, and easier on the wrists. Until a new, better method of text/idea input is created, I don't think the keyboard will be replaced, especially for what most computers are used for, data entry. For drafting, image manipulation, and gaming it would be useful, but I think it's more of a novelty than anything else, especially considering the cost of replacing a damaged/overused one. But novelty can also be fun <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>

It will be used in some fancy rich buildings and stuff and people will go ooh and ahh. But it's just not going to revolutionize anything. It's not something that is needed and it doesn't allow most people to do things they can do already, better... Computers allow people to do things faster and better than they could without them.

I think the great promise of this technology is to neuter the "computer geeks", so to speak. Computer interfaces are non-intuitive even if they are efficient for people who are skilled with them.

Absolutely right! It's this reasoning that drives us all to use teletype machines at work and home. Only the rich fancy office buildings have moved on to the VT100, and that's all for show. They only print text, which is nothing more than the teletype machines do for us.
