It’s cool to be on the cutting edge of new technologies, and it is cool to invent or even just try something new.
All we have been inspired by sci-fi films with “future-rised” interfaces.
And all we have been inspired by google glasses, it’s hella cool device
But STOP, what’s going on with PC/Laptop’s pointing devices?
You know, I mean “leap motion”, “mycestro” and other similar devices that reinvented kinect for PC/Laptop.
For example here is one more DIY motion device – http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=U180f3XG20o. It is great presentation, it is interesting device, but thats it. I don’t believe that lazy people will waving their hand the whole day. It’s too hard, believe me. May be in the near future laptops and other devices will have second web-camera and somebody gonna use “leap motion\kinect like” gestures to list presentation’s slides. But I’m sure that nobody will use it in daily work, just because it’s too hard.
I believe that mouse/trackpad device will be replaced by eye-tracking mechanism, or by the mind-PC interface, but not with the kinect like toys. It is really funny, but I think that this is totally useless
