What Comes Next in Computer Interfaces

Are you your family’s IT person?  You know, the person who everyone else calls when they have a problem?  I certainly am. 🙂

If you are, then this is for you.  One of the reasons we get called so much is that computers are actually pretty complicated to operate.  At least laptop and desktop machines are. This is primarily because of design decisions made about 30 years ago.  The whole, desktop – window – folder – file metaphor worked well when computers were simpler, but today it tends to bog down a bit.

So, I came across this cool video about a totally different way to interface with a computer besides using a mouse and working with windows.  I found this from an interesting article from Gizmodo talking about the new Apple stand alone trackpad thingy.

Check this out and then think about trying to explain this to the rest of your family.  It seems pretty straight forward to me.  🙂
