Hey Ann, I looked up your article on the tape...that just seems goofy! What now I have to wear a coat whenever I need to use my pc or game console?

Ann, no. They are just gloves with metal plates in them to help with carpal tunnel. They work pretty well.

Cabe,

 The only postioning of the monitor (besides how far away it is) that I agree with is just slightly lower than your line of sight. So your eyes are not straining to look up. As far as a desk goes....I stopped using desks years ago.....I sit on a couch or lazy boy...make up your own way that makes that work for you....I have! I HATE desks!...lol well, unless I built them

Cadman-LT, do you mean motion capture gloves, and/or gloves with some kind of motion-capture tape? Like the ShapeTape described here: http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1386&doc_id=245683

I agree. As for me, I'd love to "write" and/or edit, change programs, go online, etc., just by dancing to Jimi Hendrix in front of a Kinect-equipped computer. Or whatever we'd be calling it by then. But that means we'd have to be able to program our own individual Kinect-type device, or somehow configure it, to respond to our own individual body motions.

The most obvious answer to this problem, stop using the devices so much. We were meant to chase down animals, farm, build things... not sit at a desk all day with our hands in the same orientation.

Perhaps as the Microsoft Kinect and similar devices progress, combined with voice recognition, we will no longer have that issue.

Just a thought.
