This does seem like a cool step in this technology.  It certainly employs a unique interface for common tasks.  I'm reminded of all the developments that have evolved from keyboard, to mouse, to touch-screen for "conventional" computers. This form factor has created a whole new level of potential user interactions which will likely develop as the technology does.  Very interesting - thanks for the article and the video.

bobjengr, glad you enjoyed seeing this. I totally agree about moving items from one tab to another being the coolest part--and the hardest to explain. So far, this is described as a concept and a prototype, and neither the company--or Queen's U--has indicated that they intend to develop it commercially. But I hope they do.

Many thanks Ann.  Looking forward to seeing a working model and one that's commercialized.   This one should be a winner.  Take care. Bob

Jenn, all good questions. Since this is a prototype, not yet ready for sale, how it might be offered hasn't been determined yet.

Good point, Scott. The mouse itself was a huge step in the direction of making computers accessible to non-engineers, as well as widening their use for everyone. This could be seen as another paradigm breaker in user interfaces.
