RSS On A Coke Can? The Future Of Computing Is Flexible And Everywhere
Roel Vertegaal and The Human Media Lab at Queens University are busy developing disruptive technologies that will shape the future of computing. The lab's current focus is on organic user interfaces that allow computers to take on any shape or form. Vertegaal's mind blowing prototypes utilize three major advances in computer technology; multi touch inputs, flexible displays and kinetic organic interface. While the first two of the technologies are fairly well known, and in the early stages of public use, the third (Kinetic Organic Interface) are where things really start veering off into scifi territory.
