Interesting GUI Concept

I just came across a very interesting 10/GUI concept video. On the frontpage of their website it says:

Over a quarter-century ago, Xerox introduced the modern graphical user interface paradigm we today take for granted. That it has endured is a testament to the genius of its design. But the industry is now at a crossroads: New technologies promise higher-bandwidth interaction, but have yet to find a truly viable implementation. 10/GUI aims to bridge this gap by rethinking the desktop to leverage technology in an intuitive and powerful way.

10/GUI from C. Miller on Vimeo.

Makes you wonder what the future of the Linux desktop will look like.

  1. I want it!! Sadly, Linux will have it only when it's an already established technology. To implement this, hardware is needed; and so, we can't take the lead.

  2. I disagree, it looks like it's using a linux kernel to begin with so all 10gui have to do is bring the hardware to market with a distro-cd or drum up support with the current Linux Distro makers and you have a viable product, I know I'd buy one, that looks like it would be more productive then just using a mouse.

  3. It looks good, might be the next step for us command line geeks who try to avoid the mouse!

  4. But anyway - this is for the geeks or at least GTD freaks. A normal user often is overwhelmed when just using a single finger / mouse pointer. ;-)
