Here’s a great article about communication between devices and users and the three part evolution of interfaces. Might Organic User Interfaces be the final nail in the coffin for paper?
Even though I feel I have grown adept at typing on a touch screen(with the help of autocorrect) but having one of these panels could make typing easier and maybe some awesome gaming applications.
Another direction in interface design is more personal. By measuring heart rate, the Immersion is a headset which increases the difficulty of a game the more stressed the player becomes. I’ve written about Emotiv before and Oculus Rift (recently acquired by Facebook), the Immersion feels like a nice addition to interactive gaming.
This is supposed to be the year of wearable tech, which is moving the interface out of the devices and into the fabric of our physical lives. And possibly another step toward merging with the machine. Exciting and scary.
