One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
 
Dude really using 3 different OS?
 
Oh my goshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
I read about this a few days ago. It's a company based in India.

Motion based controls will not work.
 
I tried the Leap Motion and there's inherent flaw in the concept.  Not necessarily the design.
These things got popular since the stupid Minority Report but imagine waving your arms for hours.  You get the wow factor for couple hours and then it gets tiring.  Same way Wii have failed.
Input devices that works keeps your body in rest position like the mouse and keyboard.  Controlling with your thoughts and tracking your eyes may be the next step.  Not motion.
 
EPIC!! this would make everyone's lives (except for people with no fingers/broken ones.. lol.. sorry..
 
The force is strong with this one...
 
+Brian Choi You get the wow factor for couple hours and then it gets tiring

I think one of the problems with extended use as the main input would be getting some Gorilla arm syndrome:
> "failure to understand the ergonomics of vertically mounted touchscreens for prolonged use. By this proposition the human arm held in an unsupported horizontal position rapidly becomes fatigued and painful".
 
Vertical touchscreen pain
 
> Indeed, Apple's Steve Jobs – not usually one to dismiss a pretty gadget on the grounds of uselessness – once said he'd never launch a touchscreen laptop because of what he called "gorilla arm".
 
> "We've done tons of user testing on this," he said back in 2010, "and it turns out it doesn't work. Touch surfaces don't want to be vertical. It gives great demo, but after a short period of time you start to fatigue, and after an extended period of time, your arm wants to fall off."
 
> It is possible, of course, to position a laptop so that the screen is reachable without lifting the elbows from the desk; but this means bringing it much closer than most people find comfortable visually.
 
> Microsoft's online advice on using a PC safely doesn't mention touchscreens at all – and, ironically, instructs users to avoid just those movements that a touchscreen notebook demands.

> “Although we reached out to Microsoft for this story, the company did not respond to our request to comment.
 
> In order to touch the display on a notebook with that capability, users either have to fully extend their arm (bad and uncomfortable), lean forward (bad and awkward) or move the display closer (bad for your vision).”

It’s not as bad as a touch UI in a desktop environment, where you actually have to reach out, and touch the screen, but it could still be a problem.
 
+Brian Choi tracking your eyes may be the next step
Eye tracking
4 eye tracking companies are trying to negotiate for hardware integration right now. An external eye tracker device can cost $99, but if manufacturers of smartphone, tablet, notebook, and laptop modify the existing built-in camera in these devices, and add an upgraded sensor, it’s supposed to only add $5 to the manufacturing cost.
 
In order to interact with a vertical touchscreen for longer periods of time, I think that you would need something like an eye tracker built into the tablet or notebook.

Look at any interface widget to highlight it, and then touch a “select-what-I’m-looking-at” button on the keyboard to activate and select it.

An eye tracking feature that was showcased is the ability to have a page automatically scroll down when the gaze reaches the bottom of the window (youtube/2q9DarPET0o?t=22s).

Likewise, you can turn the pages of an e-book hands-free by staring at the corner when you’re finished (youtube/2q9DarPET0o?t=1m19s).

Wherever there is an application that requires scrolling (isn’t that found in most programs? ;)), by mouse wheel or swiping, eye-scrolling can be added.
 
+Martin Swain I don't like my windows 8 laptop, but that's just because I don't like the OS itself. The fact that I can touch the screen isn't the problem. I actually like being able to touch the screen when appropriate. 90% of the time I use a mouse, but being able to touch it certainly doesn't make the experience worse.
 
Is he playing Halo:CE? O_O
 
looks like he could slide the ring on his dick so he could bang his girlfriend and change channels at the same time.
