On a related note:

As I am looking to buy a new laptop, I am considering a touchscreen model (Windows 8). Is touch really useful for work like CAD? Anyone have experience?

Jo,

 

Right from the horse's mouth, so to speak. http://autodesk.blogs.com/between_the_lines/2012/10/magic-finger-for-your-designs.html

Honestly, I would like to see something less cumbersome. Although it seems innovative, something handsfree, the Microsoft Kinect for example, is the direction I see most HMIs taking.

Just a thought.

Cabe

Interesting concept but practical?

Interesting concept, but I am not sure how viable it would be. It seems like certain tasks would be linked with certain gestures and in order for the person to call home - they would have to remember what gesture to make...and what would happen if I scratched my nose unintentionally? I think the sensing mechanisms and the concept do have application - I am just wondering if it would be highly niched and the applications would reflect that? That seems to make more sense to me than a generic device that could perform 32 functions because of its ability to differentiate - I probably wouldn't remember more than 2-3...we tend to say more is better but that is not always the case...
