For the past six months we at Polychrome have been heavily involved with the exploration and marketing of multitouch technologies so after seeing this project it gives us a whole new perspective on human/computer interaction.
Also, after using a number of multitouch-enabled hardware products, I agree that the Wacom-like concept of using an indirect touch surface is vastly much more practical for every-day computing than the direct hands-on-screen multitouch machines that we are currently seeing.
I’ll be very interested to see where this project goes and will be watching it closely.
Over a quarter-century ago, Xerox introduced the modern graphical user interface paradigm we today take for granted.
That it has endured is a testament to the genius of its design. But the industry is now at a crossroads: New technologies promise higher-bandwidth interaction, but have yet to find a truly viable implementation.
10/GUI aims to bridge this gap by rethinking the desktop to leverage technology in an intuitive and powerful way.
