Is Touchscreen the Future?

15 Aug 2008 10:54AM   Views : 471 Unique : 399

I have always been a bit of a futurist I would think. I like the thought that maybe one day we would all be flying around in our little spaceships and what not. Personally, I would have to convert a Delorean to be my little spaceship.

It can be proven over and over that the future of technology mimics Sci-fi films and books. I remember dreaming up the idea that I could go to school with a little memory card that held all my books and school work on it and would plug this into a touchscreen that was the size of a peice of notebook paper. Well, it looks like this is now reality.

Cameras, Phones, Notebooks, Cash-registers, airports, they all use touchscreens in one form or another. I love that its finally being brought into consumer life. I can't wait for the day that the desktop computer is replaced with a server and a little notepad that connects (via wifi) to control it along with a touchscreen keyboard. There will be no need for a mouse either.

In my opinion touchscreen is the future...but what is the future after that....thoughtscreen (works off your thoughts)?

Just another rambling.

I think some way of plugging into the brain so we can share what we see without the need of a camera will be the next revolution in photography. Connect through port in side of head and wireless wireless from the stored images in the brain to the viewing device or other users with same technology installed.

When you've watched a young boy digitally explore his left nostril and then have a poke about with the very same finger on one of the interactive touchscreens in St. Fagans you do tend to wonder if technology is a little too sophisticated for some of us.
