Keyboards are for wimps


We've come a long way since those first GUIs. Or have we? Today's PCs are thousands of times more powerful than the first Macs or Windows-capable PCs, but we all still use a mouse and a keyboard to get information into a computer, and a screen and a printer to get information out.

For many years there have been attempts to move beyond the WIMP interface. Voice recognition has improved significantly, and some of us can now talk to our computers to make them (most of the time) do as they're told.

We have touch screens and tablet PCs. We have devices that project information on to special glasses and which can track an eye's movement around a screen.  (Source: Graeme Philipson, Stuff.co.nz)
