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.
