    Is the mouse on the way out? One would think with the advent of the iPhone, iTouch and now the iPad. The touch screen technology is slowly seeping into our homes. Is this truly the future of computers? Touch screen poses a few problems with the human anatomy, desktop touch screens don’t really work well for humans according to Michael Arrington. The practicality of it might seem logical at the moment, but there might be a health issue in the end for some.

    This video examines the benefits and limitations inherent in current mouse-based and window-oriented interfaces, the problems facing other potential solutions, and visualizes my proposal for a completely new way of interacting with desktop computers.
