Goodbye to the mouse?

21st July 2008

The BBC website reports the demise of the computer mouse: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7508842.stm

We're not so sure that it will die that easily.  When you can click a precise link or button by a slight movement of the wrist or finger, why on earth would you want to use mid-air hand gestures that aren't even very precise?

There's an application for hand gestures in gaming, but when you want to get on with work, there is a need to manage much more information, and that can be done best with mouse and keyboard.
