Microsoft Skinput?

Is funny how technology develops…it takes a while for the lag to catch up I suppose. I like this novel pursuit of new interfaces between humans and technology, I can’t help thinking it wont end up used at all like it is shown here though, I see this more useful to warfare, body electronic metrics and gaming than for personal devices like mobile phones. I could be wrong though, anyway I like the idea of Microsoft Skinput, at least the projection part!

    I agree with you on some points. This technology seems like it is better suited for gaming. Perhaps a strange new form of Twister? There may be some practical personal computing uses for it however routine tasks like making and answering phone calls. Maybe for customer service reps? They tap their left forearm to forward your call to technical support, right forearm for sales.

    Hi Cicada

    I think it might be used but like you say I doubt in such a finer level as number dialling, at least until its improved a fair bit!
