Well it looks interesting and like a lot of fun... but it does not seem that efficient. I liked the interactive pull and strech characters.

i was pretty impressed! the implications behind this technology could be far reaching indeed. from anywhere between digital navigation systems to making your coffee in the morning and ordering your groceries in the morning. cool stuff.

Fascinating, really. Although for most production based tasks it seems just too physically exertive (I can't imagine having to use so many upper and lower arms muscles on all nighter production binges), but for consumer end users, on a more compressed time use level, it seems like a fantastic level of interaction. Of course, and particularly in the right kind of entertainment environment.

The one place I believe it would gain immediate prominence just for it's sheer wow factor as a commercial application, and where the wow factor is key, is in a casino based slot environment. As they seem to be the highest profile locations where arcade environments are still thriving and growing, and where user interaction by and large isn't prolonged for most users.

Good stuff.

i dont see it as a means of animation production at all (though you never know in 50 years... or less?). i see it as a new means of moving past the desktop paradigm of personal computers. we still deal with information in a flat linear way. with this, the user will be able to dynamically change the way he processes and organizes information. for example, the traditional "icon" (a picture, a word document, a spreadsheet, whatever) and the actual information that it represents become one and the same.

WOW! This is WAY more than just a gee whiz gizmo... its truly a great innovation and it will certainly have applications we haven't even dreamed of yet.

I think great industrial design incorporates tools and interfaces that you immediately know how to use without hardly any training.... its almost intuitive. I think most users would be comfortable using this thing almost immediately. I felt that way when I bought my Cintiq... literally within 5 seconds it just felt RIGHT. Thats a great tool.

I think we'll see this all over in a few years-
Heck, the interface on this display is so simple, even an adult can use it.
