3D interactions

Now that we have touch interfaces and these interfaces are successful in the marketplace, why can’t we have interfaces that work with touch and proximity?

Matt Hirsch has put up some of his work and it is very intriguing. He is looking at existing technologies so that manufactures could build possible gestural interfaces in the near future.

Got an ideas for useful interactions?

Listen … Damn it!

Tom Peters in his over the top energetic way points out how doctors on average listen to their patients for 18 seconds before jumping in. He scolds the managers of the world for doing so too.

Listen, damn it.

Here is Tom on YouTube:
