I've used a tablet for years because it mimics the natural movement of drawing by hand.

What about ergnomics?  These are really cool but the mouse isn't the healthiest thing to use.  Espeially when you're in front of the screen for seveal hours a day.

@Naperlou: I definitely see a future for tablet use among engineers, although I guess I didn't envision it as an input device. Glad you brought it up. With more and more engineers out in the field at customer sites or collaborating with design partners in the field, having the mobility and the larger real estate of a tablet platform to conduct design reviews, visualize assemblies, do conceptual sketching--all of that work is easily translated to the tablet platform thanks to the incoming slew of mobile design apps.

Those are a lot of crazy devices.  I wonder if any will "win" in the market place.  I didn't notice tablet devices, except in the last slide as a secondary device.  My expeience is that these are still used by those who need to draw in any detail.  Do you see a future for these?
